Now why so loving, darling,And why the sudden kiss?Youd help me with some little jobs?For goodness sake, whats this?

But surely youre some stranger.No rage or hullabaloo,Come closer, let me look, dear,Can this be REALLY you?
Now were you struck by lightning?Or were you stunned at sports?Ahnow I see the reason.Youve brought your school report!
