The first day that I wore my Knickerbocks I felt so funny after wearin' smocks I looked a little picture they did say But when they let me out to run and play. Oh, I didn't like the pants that I was wearin' So on the street I took 'em off you see And I started walkin' home so brave and darin' In the little shirt my mother made for me. While I was on my holiday Upon the briny ocean I did gaze The water looked so fine I thought I'd go and have a swim but in a minute, oh. All the girls on beach at me were starin' And some were takin' pictures I could see Was a lucky thing for me that I was wearin' The little shirt my mother made for me...
