This world is full of funny things, and funny people too;
A funny saying always clings to funny things we do:
Expressions ev'ry one have heard, and some have made a hit,
But the latest saying's just a word-it's nit! nit! nit!

 Now Grover's got three lovely girls-of course, they are his joy,
But what he wants is hard to get, a bouncing baby boy.
And if the next should be a girl, poor "Grove" will have a fit,
It's enough to tempt the man to call it nit! nit! nit!

This country's in an awful state, and, really, it seems strange;
They told us we'd have lots of tin with the presidential change;
McKinley said, "Indeed you will, if in the chair I sit,
But spell tin backwards and you'd find it's nit! nit! nit!

I went to see my girl one night, she met me at the door.
She told me that her "ma" was in, that made me awful sore.
Said she, "Mamma's crocheting, come and see her for a bit;
She knows I lov to see her mother (k)nit! (k)nit! (k)nit!

Unless you've seen these living pictures, you would scarce believe
They wore the kind of clothes they did when Adam first met Eve;
Old Adam wore a bright smile, and it was a lovely fit,
But the costume mother Eve had on was (k)nit! (k)nit! (k)nit!
