I was a naughty little lad
When Mother sent me off to school
I used to raise an awful noise
If the teacher put me amongst the boys

For there I'd sit a fretting all the day

And to the teacher coaxingly I'd say
"Oh teacher.

You know I'd do the same for you
Put me amongst the girls
Those with the curly curls
They'll enjoy themselves and so will I
If you'll put me amongst the girls."

John Jones came up to town
Meant to be a member of the force

You're duty lies up East" the Sergeant cried
"You're tough so get amongst the rough" John thought of Piccadilly as he sighed
"Oh Sergeant,


Seth Binks was such a pious man
Never stayed out after 3 am
Stage doors he used to hang about
Till he caught a cold that laid him out

We'll plant you amongst the daisies in the Sun"
Poor Seth, though gasping for his breathe
Said, "If there's any planting to be done
Oh doctor,
