My Darling, My Darling Nora Mattei
She came from Corsican ole sod ages ago
To help us with our wails and woes
As we go through life with its throes

She is now working as a social worker
at the Virginia Regional Medical Center, she toils
and helps as many of the patients as possible
As she will be doing in ages to come
