And it's 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.

Now the first old lady was Margaret Flynn,
She went inside on a personal whim;
But she somehow got stuck between the bowl and the rim,
And nobody knew she was there.

And it's, 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.

Now the second old lady was Elizabeth Humphrey,
She went inside and she made herself comfy;
When she tried to get up, ah, she couldn't get her bum free,
And nobody knew she was there.

And it's, 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.

Now the third old lady was old Mrs. Mason,
The toilet was full so she used the basin;
Ah, but that was the water that I washed me face in,
And I didn't know she was there.

And it's, oh dear, what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavo, in the lavatory;
They were there from Sunday till Saturday,
Nobody knew they were there.

Now the fourth old lady was old Mary Draper,
She went inside and she couldn't find the paper;
All she could find was a bricklayer's scraper,
Nobody knew she was there.

And it's, 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.

Now the fifth old lady was old Mrs. Barrett,
She paid her penny and inside she darted;
What a waste of a penny for she only [fiddle]
Nobody knew she was there.

And it's, 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.

Now the sixth old lady was Chichester's daughter,
She went inside to get rid of some superfluous water;
Ah, but when she sat down the rising tide caught her,
And nobody knew she was covered all over with ....

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.

Now the seventh old lady was delicate Brenda,
She just went inside to adjust her suspender;
But it somehow got caught in a masculine gender,
And nobody knew I was there. [ha-ha]

And it's, 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.
