How I Became an Orphan - Lyrics

Dolly died of dysentery
Polly got the pox
Kevin caught cholera
Harry whooping cough
Maisy died of measles
Hue died of abue
Toby was taken by typhoid
And doc was too
Rats, lice and fleas
My only company
Since you've been gone
I'm left on my own with these
Rats, lice and fleas
Timmy died of tetanus
Tessa from TB
Poor Georgie, he was stuffed
But that's another story
Sam succumb to syphilis
Father fell to flu
Mother died of grief
Her heart was broken
In two
Rats, lice and fleas
My only company
Since you've been gone
I'm left on my own with these
Rats, lice and fleas
RATS, LICE AND FLEAS
MY ONLY COMPANY
SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE
I'M LEFT ON MY OWN WITH THESE
RATS, LICE AND FLEAS
Yaaaargh!
Aargh!
Aargh!
Aargh!
Aaaaaarrgh!
