SQUEEZE 'ER, EBENEZER
 
div
 

Ebenezer courted once a widow Mrs Brown.
He'd go to see her every night just when the sun went down.
She used to sit upon his knee and give a gentle sigh;
Some naughty boys a-looking through the window all would cry:

Chorus: 'Squeeze 'er, squeeze 'er, Ebenezer
Squeeze 'er, Ebenezer, do.
Don't you mind us looking in.
Kiss that dimple on her chin.
Don't be shy. Never say die.
You don't want to tease her.
She looks nice and you're all right.
Why don't you turn out the light?
Squeeze 'er, squeeze 'er,
Squeeze 'er, Ebenezer.'

Ebenezer took the widow to the silvery sea.
They went bathing both together, bobbed about with glee.
She looked nice in pink and white and gaily bobbed about.
The people watching saw them and they all began to shout:

Chorus: 'Squeeze 'er, squeeze 'er, Ebenezer
Squeeze 'er, Ebenezer, do.
Oh you are a silly goat.
Why don't you teach her to float?
Don't be shy. Never say die.
You know it will please her.
Grab her round the waist just so;
Hold her tight and don't let go.
Squeeze 'er, squeeze 'er,
Squeeze 'er, Ebenezer.'

Ebenezer married her and oh it was a day.
They went off on their honeymoon;
They both looked bright and gay.
When late at night they both sat yawning
Down in their hotel,
A lot of fellows came in and they all began to yell:

Chorus: 'Squeeze 'er, squeeze 'er, Ebenezer, Squeeze 'er, Ebenezer, do.
Hurry up and show your pluck. We've come in to wish you luck.
Don't be shy. Never say die. Smile at sweet Louisa.
There's a treat for you in store; She's been married twice before.
Squeeze 'er, squeeze 'er, Squeeze 'er, Ebenezer.'
