Oh, dear, what can the matter be,
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory;
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.

The first old lady was old Mrs. Hender,
She came in to fix up a broken suspender,
That somehow got caught around masculine gender,
But nobody knew she was there.

Oh, dear, what can the matter be,
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory;
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.

The next to come in was Penelope Pin,
Sure she only came in for a personal whim.
But she got her ass caught between the bowl and the brim,
And nobody knew she was there.

Oh, dear, what can the matter be,
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory;
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.

The next old lady was old Mrs. Shafer,
She looked 'round the room, there was no toilet paper;
All she could find was a bricklayer's scraper,
Covered all over with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and....

Oh, dear, what can the matter be,
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory;
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.

The next old lady was Betty Ann Bruster,
She sat on the handle and she thought someone goosed her.
She said, Oh, my God! This don't feel like it used to,
But nobody knew she was there.

Oh, dear, what can the matter be,
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory;
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.

The fifth old lady was Harriet Humphrey,
She sat on the toilet and made her self comfy;
When she tried to get up she couldn't get her bum free,
And nobody knew she was there.

Oh, dear, what can the matter be,
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory;
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.

The sixth old lady was old Mrs. Barrette,
She shoved in a quarter to the bathroom she started;
What a waste of a quarter 'cause she only farted,
And nobody knew she was there.

Oh, dear, what can the matter be,
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory;
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.

The last old lady was old Mrs. Mason,
The toilet was full so she used the basin,
And that was the water that I washed my face in,
'Cause I didn't know she was there.

Oh, dear, what can the matter be,
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory;
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.
