Who’s love she did confess
To a man named Bill,

But alas he doesn’t love Bess!


There Was A Young Lady Called Lou

There was a young lady called Lou
Who starred in movies most blue.
A priest named Hocking
Found them most shocking.
As for me, I watched them too …!

A naughty young lady called Lou
Stars in movies most blue.

Says he walks in the park
But I think he watches them too.

Fell from a very high bough
A farmer, named Guy

There Was A Young Lady Called Samantha

Who met in spring with a panther.
