And it's oh dear what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies locked in the lavat'ry
They were there from Sunday to Saturday
Nobody knew they were there la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Now the first was the wife of the deacon of dover
And though it was known she's a bit of a rover
She liked it so much she thought she'd stay over
And nobody knew she was there

And it's oh dear what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies locked in the lavat'ry
They were there from Sunday to Saturday
Nobody knew they were there la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Well the next was an athletic lady named Myrtle
She jumped o'er the top like a steeple chase hurdle
Her glasses got caught in the stay of her girdle
And nobody knew she was there

And it's oh dear what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies locked in the lavat'ry
They were there from Sunday to Saturday
Nobody knew they were there la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Well the next was a lady, Elizabeth Bender
Was doing all right 'til a vagrant suspender
Got all tangled up in her feminine gender
And nobody knew she was there

And it's oh dear what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies locked in the lavat'ry
They were there from Sunday to Saturday
Nobody knew they were there la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Well the next was a lady named Jennifer Kim
She'd just settled in on a personal whim
Somehow she got hers caught 'tween the cup and the brim
And nobody knew she was there

And it's oh dear what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies locked in the lavat'ry
They were there from Sunday to Saturday
Nobody knew they were there la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Well the next was the Bishop of Chichester's daughter
She wanted to pass some superfluous water
She pulled on a chain and the rising tide caught her
And nobody knew she was there

And it's oh dear what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies locked in the lavat'ry
They were there from Sunday to Saturday
Nobody knew they were there la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Well the last was a lady sweet Nellie Pumphrey
She settled right in and she made herself comfy
Somehow she found out she could not get her bum free
And nobody knew she was there

And it's oh dear what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies locked in our lavat'ry
They were there from sunday to saturday
Nobody knew they were there!
