1Our hired girl, she's 'Lizabuth Ann;
2An' she can cook best things to eat!
3She ist puts dough in our pie-pan,
4An' pours in somepin' 'at's good an' sweet;
5An' nen she salts it all on top
6With cinnamon; an' nen she'll stop
7An' stoop an' slide it, ist as slow,
8In th' old cook-stove, so's 'twon't slop
9An' git all spilled; nen bakes it, so
10It's custard-pie, first thing you know!
11An' nen she'll say,
12"Clear out o' my way!
13They's time fer work, an' time fer play!
14Take yer dough, an' run, child, run!
15Er I cain't git no cookin' done!"
16When our hired girl 'tends like she's mad,
17An' says folks got to walk the chalk
18When she's around, er wisht they had!
19I play out on our porch an' talk
20To Th' Raggedy Man 'at mows our lawn;
21An' he says, "Whew!" an' nen leans on
22His old crook-scythe, and blinks his eyes,
23An' sniffs all 'round an' says, "I swawn!
24Ef my old nose don't tell me lies,
25It 'pears like I smell custard-pies!"
26An' nen he'll say,
27"Clear out o' my way!
28They's time fer work, an' time fer play!
29Take yer dough, an' run, child, run!
30Er she cain't git no cookin' done!"
31Wunst our hired girl, when she
32Got the supper, an' we all et,
33An' it wuz night, an' Ma an' me
34An' Pa went wher' the "Social" met, --
35An' nen when we come home, an' see
36A light in the kitchen door, an' we
37Heerd a maccordeun, Pa says, "Lan'-
38O'-Gracious! who can her beau be?"
39An' I marched in, an' 'Lizabuth Ann
40Wuz parchin' corn fer The Raggedy Man!
42"Clear out o' the way!
43They's time fer work, an' time fer play!
44Take the hint, an' run, child, run!
45Er we cain't git no courtin' done!"
