Let's get to the bottom of this
And we see where the trouble's seated;
For a stitch in time is something I'm
Thinking should be completed.
Perhaps you don't give a darn
But I'll darn up hese trunks with vim;
When a boy cavorts in holey shorts,
He's wholly out of the swim.
And so I shall sew and sew
So thoroughly that you can
Be sure no flush of boyish blush
Will redden your cheek of tan.
We'll get to the bottom of this
And do us a job of mending;
And as I darn I'll spin you a yarn--
A yarn with a happy ending.
