From the Show:             Two Little Girls In Blue  1921 (S)

We have to serve six meals a day
And serve 'em piping hot.
To do our best we try, says I.
Aye!  aye!  [salute]
But passengers are all a howling
Scowling, growling lot.
They're hard to satisfy, says I.
Aye!  aye!  [salute]
Some ask for hummingbird,
Some ask for whale.
If we could have our way,
We'd give 'em jail.


For it is "Steward, here, steward, I say;
Bring this or that right away."
Busy from early morn right through the dinner,
They're growing stouter while we're growing thinner.
We've got to yes 'em and dress 'em all day.
There's not a moment we're free.
For you're a sailor, a nurse, and a tailor,
When you're a steward at sea.
