When a doodle's not engaged in her employment
Or maturing her felonious little plans,
Her capacity for innocent enjoyment
Depends on the position of the hands.
When the bloody cupboard door is not a-opening,
When the doggie biscuits don't arrive on time
She hates to hear her little tum a-gurgling
And listens for the kitchen clock to chime.
When a doodle's finished bullying 'er muver
She's asked to sit a-waiting just for fun.
Ah, take one consideration wif anuver,
The doodle's lot's a very 'appy one.
