Sippin' Cider Through a Straw

The prettiest girl (the prettiest girl)
I ever saw (I ever saw)
Was sippin' ci- (was sippin ci-)
Der through a straw (der through a straw
The prettiest girl I ever saw
Was sipping cider through a straw.

I told that gal (etc.)
I didn't see how
She sipped that ci-
Der through a straw

Then cheek to cheek
And jaw to jaw
We sipped that ci-
Der through a straw.

And now and then
That straw would slip
And I'd sip some ci-
Der from her lip.

And now I've got
A mother-in-law
From sipping ci-
Der through a straw.

note: Drinking straws were invented, I'm told, in 1813.
The song is often sung with a pronounced lisp: Thippin' Thi- etc. RG
