Drugs Made Pauline Vague


Drugs made Pauline vague.
She sat one day at the breakfast table
Fingering in a baffled way

said Dulcie, exchanging a glance with the Brigadier.

Chuff chuff Pauline what's the matter?
Said the Brigadier to his wife
Who did not even notice
What a handsome couple they made.
