Oh, dear, what can the matter be

Tearing myself away from the Catalan parliament debate on whether Superman is right-wing, news from Tarragona of Manoli Silva Martí, who died in a supermarket toilet and was not discovered for 57 hours. You all know the song, of course:

Oh, dear, what can the matter be,
Three old ladies locked in a lavatory,
They were there from Monday till Saturday,
Nobody knew where they’d gone.

They promised they’d buy me (etc)

9 Squadron’s is one of numerous variations. A used car dealer from Barnsley taught it to Liberace on the Queen Mary. My dad taught me it and he still sings it regularly, which is more than can be said for Liberace.
