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!

41Better say,

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!"
