BATHHOUSE BLUES

The youngest of ten and a tiny young mite,

The muvver was poor an` the biby was thin,

Only a skelington covered in skin;

The muvver turned rahnd for the soap off the rack,

She was but a moment, but when she turned back,

The biby was gorn; and in anguish she cried,

“Oh, where is my biby?” – The angels replied:

“Your biby `as fell dahn the plug-`ole,

Your biby `as gorn dahn the plaug;

The poor little thing was so skinny an` thin

`E oughter been barfed in a jug;

Your biby is perfekly `appy,

`E won`t need a barf anymore,

Your biby `as fell dahyn the plug – `ole,

Not lorst, but gorn before.”
