VP_016717 Verse 1I seem to be the victim of a cruel jest, It dogs my footsteps with the girl I love the best. She's just the sweetest thing that I have ever known, But still we never get the chance to be alone. My car will meet her And her mother comes too! It's a two-seater Still her mother comes too! At Ciro's when I am free, At dinner supper or tea, She loves to shimmy with me- And her mother does too! We buy her trouseau And her mother comes too! Asked not to do so Still her mother comes too! She simply can't take a snub, I go and sulk at the club, Then have a bath and a rub- And her brother comes too! Verse 2 There may be times when couples need a chaperone, But mothers ought to learn to leave a chap alone. I wish they'd have a heart and use their common sense For three's a crowd, and more, it's treble the expense. We lunch at Maxim's And her mother comes too! How large a snack seems When her mother comes too! And when they're visiting me, We finish afternoon tea, She loves to sit on my knee- And her mother does too! To golf we started And her mother came too! Three bags I carted When her mother came too! She fainted just off the tee, My darling whisper'd to me- "Jack, dear, at last we are free!" But her mother came to!
