Ah! catch me, if you can! Catch me, catch me, catch me, If you can! Was there ever such a game As "Blind man's buff?" No, there never was a game Like "Blind man's buff." Our fathers and our mothers played before us, Our grandfathers and grandmothers before us, And I verily believe That the chicks of mother Eve Played the self-same game, Played it just the same! Ah! catch me, if you can! Catch me, catch me, catch me, If you can!
