Little old lady passing by,
Catching everyone’s eye,
You have such a charming manner,
Sweet and shy.
Little old bonnet set in place,
And a Smile on your face,
You’re a perfect picture in your
Lavender and lace.
Little bit of business here,
Little bit of business there,
Bet that you’ve been window shopping
All around the square.
Little old lady, time for tea
Here’s a kiss, two or three,
You’re just like that little old lady,
I hold dear to me.
