Hebble.:
  It does perplex,
Annoy and vex
    Forgive the observation,
  When just too late
In breathless state,
    You see with irritation,
  The starting train,
While you remain
    In dreadful perturbation,
  To spend the night,
Till morning light,
    At some unheard of station,
  To spend the night
Till morning light,
    In some unheard of station!
    It does perplex,
Annoy, and vex, annoy, and vex!
It does perplex!
Annoy, and vex!

All:
  It does, it does, it does!
It does perplex,
Annoy, and vex,
Forgive, forgive the observation,
Just too late,
In breathless state,
You see with irritation

Hebble. and Rosa:
  The starting train,
While you remain
In dreadful pertubation
To spend the night
Till morning light,
At some unheard of station,

All:
  It does perplex,
Annoy and vex,
Forgive the observation,
To spend the night
Till morning light,
At some unheard of station!

Rosa:
  Your room is old,
And damp, and cold,
    Unworthy habitation,
  The spider crawls
About the walls
    And fills you with vexation,
 

Had I but known
Y ou would have flown,

    You'll judge by this narration,
  To make it good,
This morning would
    Have been my occupation.
  To spend the night
Till morning light,
    In some unheard of station!
    It does perplex,
Annoy, and vex, annoy, and vex!
It does perplex!
Annoy, and vex!

All:
  It does, it does, it does!
It does perplex,
Annoy, and vex,
Forgive, forgive the observation,
Just too late,
In breathless state,
You see with irritation

Hebble. and Rosa:
  The starting train,
While you remain
In dreadful pertubation
To spend the night
Till morning light,
At some unheard of station,

All:
  It does perplex,
Annoy and vex,
Forgive the observation,
To spend the night
Till morning light,
At some unheard of station!

(Tare is standing apart in a great rage.)
