Oom Pah Pah

NANCY:
Oh, here's a little ditty
They're singin' in the city
Especially when they've been on the gin or the beer
If you've got the patience, your own imaginations
Will tell you just exactly what you want to hear

Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
That's how it goes
Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
Everyone knows
They all suppose what they want to suppose
When they hear "Oom pah pah"

Mister Percy Snodgrass
Would often have the up-glass
But never when he thought anybody could see
Secretly he'd buy it
And drink it on the quiet
And dream he was an earl with a girl on each knee

Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
That's how it goes
Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
Everyone knows
What is the cause of his red, shiny nose
Could it be oom pah pah?

Pretty little Sally
Goes walkin' down the alley
Displays a pretty ankle to all of the men
They can see her garters
But not for free and gratis
An inch or two and then she knows when to say when!

Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
That's how it goes
Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
Everyone knows
Whether it's hidden, or whether it shows
It's the same oom pah pah

She was from the country
But now she's up a gumtree
She let a fellow feed her and lead her along
What's the use of cryin'?
She made a bed to lie in
She's glad to bring her coin in and join in this song

Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
That's how it goes
Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
Everyone knows
She is no longer the same blushing rose
Ever since oom pah pah

Oh, here's a little ditty
They're singin' in the city
Especially when they've been on the gin or the beer
If you've got the patience, your own imaginations
Will tell you just exactly what you want to hear

Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
That's how it goes
Oom pah pah, oom pah pah
Everyone knows
They all suppose what they want to suppose
When they hear oom pah pah!
