No. 18 - Song - Winifred and Chorus

MIDI File

Winifred: There once was a little boy who went to school,
And he was an aggravating lad!
He smashed ev'ry window and he broke each rule;
His behaviour was really very bad.
So the master invited him to come one day
For a private little interview;
And he welcomed master Jack
With his hand behind his back,
Saying "Guess what I've got for you!"
And the boy guessed right the very first time,
Very first time, very first time.
He guessed right away it was not a cricket bat.
I wonder how he came to think of that!
Chorus: And the boy guessed right the very first time,
Very first time, very first time.
He guessed right away it was not a cricket bat.
I wonder how he came to think of that!
   
Winifred: That boy grew older and he fell in love
With a girl just as pretty as a rose.
He was sure he adored her all the world above,
But yet he was frightened to propose.
He paid her some tender little compliments,
Said her eyes were of a lovely blue,
So the maiden growing bolder
Laid her head upon his shoulder,
Saying "Guess how I dream of you!"
And the boy guessed right the very first time,
Very first time, very first time.
He guessed right away that he'd got to take a flat,
A husband always has to think of that!
Chorus: And the boy guessed right the very first time,
Very first time, very first time.
He guessed right away that he'd got to take a flat,
A husband always has to think of that!
   
Winifred: That boy got married in a year or so,
He found her a treasure of a wife;
They lived in a happy little flat, you know,
Theirs was a happy little life.
And one fine morning people came and said
That they'd got to show him something new,
And they let him have a peep
At a bundle half asleep,
Saying "Guess what we've got for you!"
And the boy guessed right the very first time,
Very first time, very first time.
He knew by the sound it was not a pussy cat,
It's funny how he came to think of that!
Chorus: And the boy guessed right the very first time,
Very first time, very first time.
He knew by the sound it was not a pussy cat,
It's funny how he came to think of that!
