POPSY WOPSY (Music: Paul Ritter / Lyrics: Miss Ada Alexander - 1870) I am an 'elpless female An unprotected female My husband's been and gone And run away, my heart to wring He's gone to join the Mormons Those gay and festive Mormons And while he's getting married there I'm left alone to sing Oh, my Popsy Wopsy's vanished from my sight And we might have been so happy, so we might But now he's gone away to be a Mormonite And I've no doubt but what he has a dozen wives or more He had a winning manner A most engaging manner And when we wed I never thought He'd come to serve me so But he was so deceitful The men are all deceitful They bring poor girls like me to grief And that's as well to know Oh, my Popsy Wopsy's vanished from my sight And we might have been so happy, so we might But now he's gone away to be a Mormonite And I've no doubt but what he has a dozen wives or more But I mean to go and join him Go on the sly and join him Just drop upon him unawares And stop at once his fun As soon as i can reach him The fact I mean to teach him Though he may have a dozen wives Still I am Number One Oh, my Popsy Wopsy's vanished from my sight And we might have been so happy, so we might But now he's gone away to be a Mormonite And I've no doubt but what he has a dozen wives or more Now, ladies take a warning Let my fate be a warning The men are all a sort of kind Of Bluebeard and not true But if they will neglect us To love, they can't expect us For what is sauce for goose, you know Is sauce for gander, too Oh, my Popsy Wopsy's vanished from my sight And we might have been so happy, so we might But now he's gone away to be a Mormonite And I've no doubt but what he has a dozen wives or more (Contributed by Mel Priddle - February 2016)
