Oh, Susie, Behave
Susie was a nurse, pretty little nurse, and she won renown,
She had eyes that said “Be careful,” still the boys kept hanging ‘round.
When she’d hold the hand of an injured man, temper’tures flew high;
Each pulse would leap to fever heat then you’d hear the victim cry:
Oh! Susie, oh! Susie oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
Susie behave, the doctor takes my pulse ev’ry night,
Then you come ‘round and zip! There goes my resolutions.
Oh! Susie, oh! Susie, I have tried to be brave,
I’ve been through many a fight, but when you’re near me at night,
Oh! Oh! Susie behave.
Susie had become loved by everyone who came there to rest,
There were lots who had heart trouble, but not one would dare confess.
Time flew quickly by, people wondered why, not one had come out,
But they began to understand when they heard the inmates shout.
