I'm sitting in a box, a box, dear sir.
A box, you say?
A box, I say.
Why, pray say, in a box, I say?
In a box, I pray, do say.
I sit in a box 'cause my pants are lost.
Your pants are lost?
My pants are lost.
I sit in a box 'cause my pants are lost,
There's naught much more to say.
What happened, dear girl, to your pants, I ask?
My pants, you ask?
Your pants, I ask.
What happened to my pants, you ask,
I lost them on a raft.
You lost them on a raft, you say?
A raft I say.
A raft, you say!
I lost pants on a raft, dear sir,
And now sit in a box.
