(This version is sung as a canon.
The girls start, and the boys come in after one measure.)



Girls:
Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinking
What a strange world this would be
If the men were all transported
Far across the northern sea.

Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinking
Life would be so easy then
What a lovely world this would be
If there were no tiresome men.

Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinking
If we went beyond the seas
All the men would follow after
Like a swarm of honey bees.

Boys:
Rachel, Rachel, I've been thinking
What a strange world this would be
If the girls were all transported
Far across the northern sea.

Rachel, Rachel, I've been thinking
Life would be so easy then
What a lovely world this would be
If you'd leave it to the men.

Rachel, Rachel, I've been thinking
If we went beyond the seas
All the girls would follow after
Like a swarm of honey bees.
