Measles they are horrid and mumps are rather bad.
Scarlet fever’s dreadful but toothache drives ya mad.
It aches you and it shakes you, your face is twice the size
Your cheeks are round the corner and you haven’t any eyes.
If I was only clever, I’d go and ‘ave it out,
I’d put it on the table, turn it round about,
I’d smother it with toffee and with sticky current cake,
And for four and twenty hours, I’d sit and watch it ache.
