Now there was a young lady from Grosvenor Square
Who said that her clock was in need of repair
In walks the bold German and to her delight
In less than five minutes he had her put right.

Chorus

Now as they were seated down on the floor
There started a very loud knock on the door
In walked her husband and great was his shock
To see the bold German wind up his wife’s clock.

Chorus

The husband says he “Oh wife, Mary Ann
Don’t let that bold German come in here again
He wound up your clock and left mine on the shelf
If your oul’ clock needs winding I’ll wind it myself!”

Chorus
