WHAT'S THAT FOR, EH?

I don't like boys - they are so rude
I would not like them if I could
Well, Johnny Jones he's not so low
He tells me things what I don't know
One day a rude boy pulled my hair
And though I cried he didn't care
He only laughed and went like so
So off I ran to Ma to know,

Chorus: "What's that for, eh? Tell me Ma
If you don't tell me I'll ask Pa"
But Ma said, "Oh its no thing shut your row"
Well, I've asked Johnny Jones, see
So I know now.


Ma says I am a tiresome child
My questions drive her nearly wild
I want to know the in and out
Of everything I see about
There's sister Flo and her young spark
They're always sitting in the dark
When I go in its "Run and play"
And so I said to Ma one day,

Chorus:

Pa took me up to town one day
To see the shops and sights so gay
Oh how the ladies made me stare
They nearly all had yellow hair
And one of them - Oh what a shame
She called Pa "Bertie" it's not his name
Then went like this (kissing sound) and winked her eye
And so I said to Pa, "Oh my

Chorus: "What's that for, eh? Tell me Pa
If you don't tell me I'll ask Ma"
But Pa said, "Oh its no thing shut your row"
Well, I've asked Johnny Jones, see
So I know now.


Ah, I know something no one knows
Ma's making, oh, such pretty clothes
Too large for dolly they must be
I'm sure they're much too small for me
There's little frocks and socks and shoes
And ribbons, reds, and pinks, and blues
And little bibs, as well there are
And other things, so I asked Ma.

Chorus: "What's that for, eh? Tell me Ma
If you don't tell me I'll ask Pa"
But Ma said, "Oh its no thing shut your row"
Well, I've asked Johnny Jones, see
So I know now.
