HOW COULD RED RIDING HOOD (HAVE BEEN SO VERY GOOD AND STILL KEEP THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR) (Alfred Pace Randolph) The Yacht Club Boys - 1926 When we were young, but old enough for us to understand We all believed in fairies and the folks in fairyland But the modern child is runnin' wild, he wants to know too much He's never understood about Red Riding Hood Say, how could little Red Ridin' Hood have been so very good And still keep the wolf from the door Father and Mother, she had none So where in the world did the money come from Please let me ask it, who filled her basket The story books never tell Now, they say that she found a great big wolf in Granny's bed And he had a great big sun bonnet pulled down over his head But you know and I know what she must've found instead Say, how could little Red Ridin' Hood have been so very good And still keep the wolf from the door How could Red Riding Hood have been so very good And still keep the wolf from the door Why was she dressed up in her bright flaming red Unless she expected to knock someone dead Why did she ramble, she knew 'twas a gamble She was out in the woods for no good They say she was a maid most discreet (Yeah?) And there's no doubt about it, she must've been sweet But you know and I know that even sweet girls must eat Oh, how could little Red Ridin' Hood have been so very good And still keep the wolf from the door I ask you how could little Red Riding Hood have been so very good And still keep the wolf from the door I've heard of many strange things in New York But who ever heard of a wolf that could talk I hate to doubt it, but there's something about it That sounds mighty funny to ???? (Say, I don't believe any one of those fairy tales) You don't? (I don't believe 'em. You believe 'em?) I believe all fairy tales (And I'd like to ask you, who was the father of all the little children of the woman that lived in the shoe?) Jack the Giant Killer! How could little Red Ridin' Hood have been so very good And still keep the wolf from the door (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2013)
