Karol Lyr Req: The Old Maid and the Burglar (22) ADD: The Old Maid and the Burglar^^^ 24 May 97

I don't know if this is the one, but my mom sang this
one to me:

I'll tell you the story of a burglar man
Who tried to rob a house.
He crept in the window and under the bed
As quiet as a mouse.

About twelve o'clock an old maid came.
"I am so tired," she said.
And she thinking all was well
Forgot to look under the bed.

She pulled out her teeth and her old glass eye,
And the hair fell off her head.
This burglar had about 99 fits
As he gazed from under the bed.

This burglar crept from under the bed.
He was a total wreck.
This old maid didn't hollar at all,
She just grabbed him around the neck.

She took a revolver in her hand
And to this burglar said,
"Young man if you don't marry me,
I'll blow off the top of your head."

This burglar looked all around the room-
He saw no place to scoot.
He thought of the teeth and the old glass eye,
And said, "Madam, for the Heaven sake SHOOT!"
