OH, YES WE DID!

When I listen to the twaddle often sung upon the stage,
Well, to say the least of it, it puts me in a rage.
I'll sing a song and splendid is the moral that it shows,
The chorus is a masterpiece, and this is how it goes,

Chorus: Oh, yes we did! oh yes we did!
We did, we did, we did, we did, we did, we did.
Oh, yes we did! oh yes we did!
Perhaps you think we didn't, but we did!

P'raps you don't see any sense in it, well, songs with sense don't pay,
It was written by the author of "Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay!"
I ought to be locked up, I know, for singing such a song,
But I think you'll get to like it better as we go along.

Chorus:

Perhaps you think this song of mine is nothing else but " kid,"
And some of you may want to know what the deuce we did.
Well, what we did would take a very long time to explain,
So I think we'd better start and sing the chorus once again.

Chorus:

Little Jack Horner sat in the corner eating a Christmas pie,
He put in his thumb and pulled out a plum, saying, 'What a good boy am I!'
That's nothing at all to do with the song, but still it comes in rhyme ;
So let us start and sing the chorus, twice as loud this time.

Chorus:
