I WANT TO TAKE A YOUNG MAN IN AND DO FOR HIM
 
div
 
I'm a widow that's lost 'er first 'usband
And not found another as yet
But I know all the ropes and I'm living in 'opes
And I'll soon get a second, you bet
I've just put a card in the window
'Good Home for a Single Young Man'
And when some nice young chap walks into the trap
To grab 'im quick is my plan. Oh

Refrain: I want to take a nice young man in and do for him
Yes, do for him, just like 'is mother would
I want to make meat pies and Irish stew for him
And feed 'im up just like a wifie should
And if he should feel lonely when I bring 'im up 'is tea
To 'elp him digest it I would sit upon his knee
And really it would be a shame to take his L.S.D.
If I took a young man in and did for 'im.


My first 'usband died of dispectic
'Is meals always gave him a pain
It made 'im that crabby 'e treated me shabby
I'm sure it affected his brain
'E couldn't keep nothing inside 'im
'E suffered no doubt for his sins
I left him at last when 'e brought up my past
An' says, 'Now you can bring up the twins.'

Refrain: I want to take a nice young man in and do for him
Yes, do for him, just like 'is mother would
I want to make meat pies and Irish stew for him
And feed 'im up just like a wifie should
So if there's any single man who wants an 'ome from 'ome
I'll make 'im so comfy that he'll never want to roam
And I'll hope to pack my nightie for a second honeycomb
If I take a young man in and do for 'im.
