Reuben and Rachel (Version 3)

Written By: Harry Birch
Copyright Unknown

Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinking
What a queer world this would be
If the men were all transported
Far beyond the Northern Sea!
Rachel, Rachel, I've been thinking
What a queer world this would be
If the girls were all transported
Far beyond the Northern Sea!

Too-ral-loo-ral-loo,
Too-ral-loo-ral,
Too-ral-loo-ral-loo,
Too-ral-lee
Far beyond 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!
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!

Too-ral-loo-ral-loo,
Too-ral-loo-ral,
Too-ral-loo-ral-loo,
Too-ral-lee
If you'd leave it to the men!

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

Too-ral-loo-ral-loo,
Too-ral-loo-ral,
Too-ral-loo-ral-loo,
Too-ral-lee
Like a swarm of honey-bees!

(Note: The chorus is often omitted,
particularly in parodies.)
