“Put Me Amongst The Girls” Lyrics

When I was a very little boy
And me mother sent me off to school
I raised an awful lot of noise
If the teacher put me amongst the boys

I would be anything but good
And then I’d sit and moping all the day
A-with sighs and teardrops in my eyes
To the teacher, coaxingly, I’d say
Oh, teacher

Put me amongst the girls
Put me amongst the girls
Do me a favor, do
You know I’d do the same for you

So won’t you put me amongst the girls?
Those with the curly curls
A-well-a, they’d enjoy themselves, and so would I
If you’d put me amongst the girls

Thomas Harry Jones came up to London town
He meant to be a member of the police force
Well, his feet were regulation feet
Just the feet to ornament a beat

“Tom, Tom, put your helmet on
Your duty lies abeat”, the seargent said
“You’re tough, so get among the rough”
Tom thought of Piccadilly, and he sighed
Oh, seargent

Put me amongst the girls
Put me amongst the girls
Do a-me a favor, do
Well, you a-know I’d do the same for you

So won’t you put me amongst the girls?
Those with the curly curls
A-well-a, they’d enjoy themselves, and so would I
If you’d put me amongst the girls

Seth Biggs was such a pious man
He never stayed up after two am
Stage doors, he used to hang about
’Til he caught a cold that knocked him out

A pal said, “Cheer up, you’ll soon be dead
We’ll plant you ’neath the daisies in the sun”
Poor Seth, though gasping for his breath
Said, “If there’s any planting to be done”
All together now

Put me amongst the girls
Oh, won’t you put me amongst the girls?
Oh, won’t you do a-me a favor, do?
Well, you a-know I’d do the same for you

So won’t you put-a me amongst the girls?
Those with the curly curls
A-well-a, they’d enjoy themselves, and so would I
If you’d put me amongst the girls
Put me amongst the girls
