Lyrics

There once was a poodle named Shirley
Whose hair was impossibly curly
Though she rolled in the mud and crawled into bed early
Her hair, I'm afraid, remained curly

Shirley, oh, Shirley
Her hair was impossibly curly
Young Shirley, oh, Shirley
Her hair, I'm afraid, remained curly

There was a fine dachshund called Nate
Who thought that his hair was too straight
So he dug a good hole and slipped under the gate
When they found him, his hair was still straight

Nate, oh, Nate
When they found him, his hair was still straight
Nate, poor little Nate
When they found him, his hair was still straight

Now the end of the story is funny
On a day that was brilliantly sunny
Young Shirley and Nate met outside of the gate
And eloped without clothing or money

Nate, whose hair was so straight
Thought Shirley was wonderfully curly
And Shirley thought Nathan was great
That's the story of Shirley and Nate
