Lyrics Adelaide's Lament

It says here the average unmarried female basically insecure
Due to some long frustration may react
With psychosomatic symptoms
Difficult to endure affecting the upper respiratory tract
In other words just from waiting around
For that plain little band of gold
A person can develop a cold
You can spray her wherever you figure there's streptococci lurk
You can give her a shot for whatever's she's got but it just won't work
If she's tired of getting the fish eye from the hotel clerk
A person can develop a cold
It says here the female remaining single just in the legal sense
Shows a neurotic tendancy see note see note note ah ah
Chronic organic syndromes toxic or hypertense
Involving the eye the ear the nose and throat
In other words just from wondering whether the wedding is on or off
A person ah ah can develop a cough
You can feed her all day with the vitamin A and the bromofizz
But the medicine never gets anywhere near where the trouble is
If she's getting a kind of a name
For herself and the name ain't his
A person can develop a cough
And further more just from stalling and stalling and stalling the wedding trip
A person can develop la grippe
When they get on that train to Niagara
And she can hear church bells chime
The compartment is air conditioned and the mood sublime
Then they get off at Saratoga for the fourteenth time
A person can develop la grippe
Ah la grippe la post nasal drip
With the wheezes and the sneezes
And a sinus that's really a pip huh huh huh huh oh argh
From a lack of community property
And a feeling she's getting too old
A person can develop a bad, bad, cold
