Oh, Edward you look so happy now
You dress so neat and clean
I never see you drunk about
Pray tell me where you've been.

Your wife and family air they well
You once did use them strange
You have kinder to them grown
How come this happy change

How come this happy change
You have kinder to them grown
How come this happy change (Thede)
