Three little maids from school are we,
Pert as a school-girl well can be,
Filled to the brim with girlish glee,
Three little maids from school!

Everything is a source of fun. (Chuckle)

Nobody's safe, for we care for none! (Chuckle)

Pitti-Sing
Life is a joke that's just begun! (Chuckle)

Come from a ladies' seminary,
Freed from its genius tutelary
Three little maids from school!
