only knew the chorus, googled it and learned three more verses LOL

Oh Dear! What Can the Matter Be


Oh dear! What can the matter be,
Three old maids got stuck in the lavatory,
They were there from Monday to Saturday,
And nobody knew they were there.

The first Old Maid was Elizabeth Bender,
She went in to fix her suspender,
It snapped back, hit her feminine gender,
And nobody knew they were there.


The second Old Maid was Old Ms. Potter,
She went in to get rid of superfluous water,
She claimed to be the Earl of Chesterfield's Daughter,
And nobody knew they were there.


The third old maid was old Ms. Humpfrey,
She sat so long she couldn't get her b*m free,
She said 'I don't care for I am quite comfy',
And nobody knew she was there.
