DT SONG Old Maid and the Burglar.

This is a different song, though. You can hear it at RECORD LADY, using the artist and song indexes to find and download the file. And please, support the Record Lady site if you can!

As recorded by Bud Messner and Molly Darr

1. An old maid woke and saw a burglar standin' in her room;
She didn't yell, she didn't scream, and she didn't grab a broom.
She says, "You're welcome to my door, you're such a handsome chap."
Instead of callin' for a cop, she sat right on his lap.

"Father put the cow away; get her out of sight.
I am heavy-hearted, I cannot milk tonight.
It ain't fair to this here cow for me to try and milk her now.
Father put the cow away-- I cannot milk tonight.
Tra-la-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la."


2. A boy and a gal were a-ridin' in the backseat of a car;
She says, "I want attention! Quit smokin' that cigar!"
He dropped the butt; they took a kiss; then what do you suppose?
They hit a bump, the flivver jumped; and she bit off his nose!
