Confirmed Old Maid (OT2003-3002-009)



When I was young and in my prime I love a little fella
But now I'm old I'm far to [rhymes with: tool]
I'm growing grey and yellow

Oh dear, oh dear
Oh dear, what shall I do
For I'm a real confirmed old maid
At the age of forty-two
At the age of forty-two

There was Mister Brown, a nice young man
He weared a turned-up dickey
But somehow I'm afraid of him
He seems a little tricky

Oh dear, oh dear
Oh dear, what shall I do
For I'm a real confirmed old maid
At the age [tape cuts]
