You'Re A Fool To Get Rejected - Poem by Robert Kirkland Kernighan

So the girl you love said ' No,' and you 're rejected !

Raddy addy umpty turn ta tee !
Unless you 're blind, 'twas what you had expected !

Raddy addy umpty turn ta tee !
Fur if the girl had loved you she'd a-showed it :
Loved you very dearly you'd a-knowed it :

By the flutter of her hand,

By her glances shy an bland,

By the drooping of her head,

By her cheeks so hot an red ;

By her bosom's gentle sigh,

By the love-light in her eye,

By her little gusts of rage,

By her little sermons sage ;

Wen she rubbed against you witchin,

Like the kitten in the kitchen ;

Wen she 'd sit and sulk or tease

You saw no signs of these !

Then listen, if you please ;
You never had a chance to be elected !

Raddy addy umpty turn ta tee !

Served you right, you clumsy loon, to get rejected 1
Raddy addy umpty turn ta tee !
