My mother in law used to sing a song about a buglar bold who crept into an Old maid's room and watched her disemble herself. Last line was For Pete's Sake Shoot.

Would like to share with my grandchildren can anyone help me.

While I'm not familiar with the tune you mention, as such, you'll find one in the Digital Tradition files that does seem closely related. "Very Unfortunate Man" is the tale of a young lawyer who marries a weatlthy old maid for money, not love, then looks on in shock and amazement as she literally "goes to pieces" before her vanity mirror on their wedding night. A funny song and fun to sing, it might keep your grandchildren amused until you do find the tune you're looking for. (I'm looking forward to seeing that one, too!)

At least one version of the Old Maid and The Burglar should be in the new April 1997 edition of the DT. Late, and (I hope) Great.

My dad sang a song to the tune of after the ball was over. Something like this: After the ball was over, Sadie took out her glass eye, Put her false teeth on the table, .... Hung up her leg in the corner, put her .. on the wall, ...what was left of poor Sadie, after the ball.

He probably wouldn't have thought to sing it for us kids, but we had those Mitch Miller albums.
