    Mistress Mabel, she's seriously wrong
    Clears my table, bang and then she's gone
    Takes a liberty if you let her
    Yes she's old but she should know better
    Oh dear Mabel please don't put me on

    Mistress Mabel, all the kids agree
    You're unstable, curious and free
    Wine 'em down, and then keep 'em kickin'
    Sunken eyed and all panic stricken
    Oh dear Mabel it still worries me

    Well and like rat bag, so they told her
    Last night's name tag across her shoulder

    [Chorus: ]
    Tell me where all the days have gone, when you rocked my cradle
    Tell me Mabel
    Where'd you go when you can't go on with this willful fable
    Tell me Mabel

    Mistress Mabel, won't you marry me?
    I'm unable to take it seriously
    I'll be good, and you'll be a minute
    I wish you would, or I'll drop you in it
    Oh dear Mabel wont you marry me?

    And like rat bag, so they told her
    Last nights name tag across her shoulder

    [Chorus: Repeat 3X] Writer/s: JOHN LAWLER
