MIDI File [16KB, 1' 35 "]


Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo & Pitti-Sing.
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!
Yum-Yum.
Everything is a source of fun. (chuckle)
Peep-Bo.
Nobody's safe, for we care for none! (chuckle)
Pitti-Sing.
Life is a joke that's just begun! (chuckle)
Sybil Grey, Leonora Braham &
Jessie Bond - the original
Three Little Maids
Aileen Hynes, Viola Wilson & Marjorie Eyre in 1939
Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo & Pitti-Sing. (dancing)
Three little maids from school!
Three little maids who, all unwary,
Come from a ladies' seminary,
Freed from its genius tutelary —
(suddenly demure) Three little maids from school,
Three little maids from school!
Yum-Yum.
One little maid is a bride, Yum-Yum —
Peep-Bo.
Two little maids in attendance come —
Pitti-Sing.
Three little maids is the total sum.
Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo & Pitti-Sing.
Three little maids from school!

Yum-Yum.
From three little maids take one away.
Peep-Bo.
Two little maids remain, and they —
Pitti-Sing.
Won't have to wait very long, they say —
Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo & Pitti-Sing.
Three little maids from school!
Chorus.
Three little maids from school!
All. (dancing)
Three little maids who, all unwary,
Come from a ladies' seminary,
Freed from its genius tutelary —
Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo & Pitti-Sing. (suddenly demure)
Three little maids from school!
All.
Three little maids from school!
Pauline Wales, Valerie Masterson & Peggy Ann Jones in 1966
