When people ask me why I eat
Strawberries with cream,
And calves-foot jelly for my lunch,
I ask them what they mean!
They say, if you would like to know,
I'll tell you in a thrice,
The reason why I do so is,
Because it's awf'ly nice.

It's nice, it's nice, don't you think it is so?
It's nice, it's nice, that's what I exclaim;
It's nice, it's nice, don't you think it is so?
Other people do it and, of course, I do the same.

And then they ask me why I do
Attend each fancy ball;
I answer if you'd like to know,
I'll quickly tell you all:
The ladies are so lovely, as
You dance with them you may
Just place your arms around their waist,
Which makes a fellow say:- Chorus.

My uncle he invited me
Last Christmas, you must know;
While there I kissed his daughter twice
Beneath the mistletoe.
He then said: "Miss, I won't have this,
I've caught you at it twice;
How dare you, sir, keep kissing her?"
I said: "Because it's nice!" -Chorus.

I told him that I loved the girl,
To marry her I meant;
"With you," said he,"I quite agree,
I'll give you my consent;
But better for to single keep,
So pray take my advice!"
I said: "You may think it's not right,
I think it's awf'ly nice." -Chorus.
