JANE FROM MAIDEN LANE
 
div
 
When our country cousin, Jane, first arrived in Maiden Lane
She'd a naughty little twinkle in her eye
A neatly corded box, half a pound of chocs
And a naughty little twinkle in her eye
She took a situation in a swagger A.B.C.
And in about three minutes it was full as full could be
But the funny thing was, no one knew if they came there for tea
Or the naughty little twinkle in her eye.

Chorus: Jane, Jane, Jane from Maiden Lane
She always looked so diffident and shy
But although demure and tidy
And perhaps a trifle sidy
She'd a tricky little twinkle
Such a wicked little winkle
Such a naughty little twinkle in her eye.


Then a baron's eldest son, who came in to buy a bun
Saw the naughty little twinkle in her eye
He stayed in there till he had drunk eleven cups of tea
To observe the little twinkle in her eye
He took her out to dinner, he took her out to sup
He took her on the Continent to see the Steward's Cup
But when he sent her letters she refused to give them up
With a naughty little twinkle in her eye.

Chorus: Jane, Jane, Jane from Maiden Lane
She always looked so diffident and shy
She remarked, 'They're spelt so funny
I feel sure they're worth some money'
She'd a tricky little twinkle
Such a wicked little winkle
Such a naughty little twinkle in her eye.


The next upon the scene was a truly rural Dean
Who misread the little twinkle in her eye.
Now the struggle of her life, as the Dean's devoted wife
Is to check the little twinkle in her eye
She's laced extremely straight, and puts all flighty people down
But when Maiden Lane is mentioned in that quiet Cathedral town
The critical observer will perceive beneath the frown
That there's a naughty little twinkle in her eye.

Chorus: Jane, Jane, Jane from Maiden Lane
Though her tone is now exceptionally high
If she's ever up a stump, it's
When she hands the curate crumpets
Then he starts to see a twinkle
Just a 'soupcon' of a twinkle
Such a naughty little twinkle in her eye.
