Hughie: Though I'm a man of noble birth
I'm trying all the time
To win renown throughout the earth
By daring deeds of crime!
But when for deeds that I have done
I'm brought before the beak,
He doesn't even make a pun
And will not let me speak!
For when he hears my name
He always says the same!
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
I knew he was Hughie,
There are few Such as Hugh
In the Zoo-oo-oo,
Not two all through Who's Who!
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
The clue is too true,
For it's Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: It's who-o-o?
Hughie: Just Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: That's you!
Hughie: Hugh!
Girls: It's Hughie, just Hughie,
I knew he was Hughie,
There are few Such as Hugh
In the Zoo-oo-oo,
Not two all through Who's Who!
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
The clue is too true,
Hughie: For it's Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: It's who-o-o?
Hughie: Just Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: That's you!
Hughie: Hugh!
   
Hughie: Last week I had a splendid job
And miss'd it by a fluke,
I thought that I would go and rob
My uncle — that's the Duke.
In getting in I caught my foot,
The Duke sat up in bed,
I took him by the throat and put
My pistol to his head.
He did not seem unnerv'd
But quietly observ'd:
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
I knew he was Hughie,
There are few Such as Hugh
In the Zoo-oo-oo,
Not two all through Who's Who!
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
The clue is too true,
For it's Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: It's who-o-o?
Hughie: Just Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: That's you!
Hughie: Hugh!
Girls: It's Hughie, just Hughie,
I knew he was Hughie,
There are few Such as Hugh
In the Zoo-oo-oo,
Not two all through Who's Who!
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
The clue is too true,
Hughie: For it's Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: It's who-o-o?
Hughie: Just Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: That's you!
Hughie: Hugh!
   
Hughie: I thought last year that I could win
In all the Press a place,
If I could be defendant in
A breach of promise case!
I ask'd a dancer for her hand,
She gave it at the first —
And then I wouldn't marry, and
I bade her do her worst!
But when the case was tried
The judge leant back and sigh'd:
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
I knew he was Hughie,
There are few Such as Hugh
In the Zoo-oo-oo,
Not two all through Who's Who!
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
The clue is too true,
For it's Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: It's who-o-o?
Hughie: Just Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: That's you!
Hughie: Hugh!
Girls: It's Hughie, just Hughie,
I knew he was Hughie,
There are few Such as Hugh
In the Zoo-oo-oo,
Not two all through Who's Who!
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
The clue is too true,
Hughie: For it's Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: It's who-o-o?
Hughie: Just Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: That's you!
Hughie: Hugh!
   
Hughie: A girl I thought I would abduct
And get her to elope,
So right inside her room I chuck'd
A letter and a rope;
A worthy maiden aunt look'd out,
And saw me steal her niece,
I hoped that she would raise a shout
Of Murder! Thieves! Police!
But she put out her head
And very calmly said:
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
I knew he was Hughie,
There are few Such as Hugh
In the Zoo-oo-oo,
Not two all through Who's Who!
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
The clue is too true,
For it's Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: It's who-o-o?
Hughie: Just Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: That's you!
Hughie: Hugh!
Girls: It's Hughie, just Hughie,
I knew he was Hughie,
There are few Such as Hugh
In the Zoo-oo-oo,
Not two all through Who's Who!
It's Hughie, just Hughie,
The clue is too true,
Hughie: For it's Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: It's who-o-o?
Hughie: Just Hugh-ugh-ugh!
Girls: That's you!
Hughie: Hugh!
