Lyrics

When we caught the seven hundred men And hung them in their prison pen Who said, "Suspend them by their fuzz"? Was I Wazir? I was! (Was he Wazir? He was!) When the keeper of the royal zoo Was short a cockatoo or two Who sealed him in a pot of glue? Was I Wazir? I was! (Was he Wazir? He was! He has a way of learning what he wants to know Delicate, but to the point!) They always seem to remember When I begin to dismember them Arm by arm and ear by ear and joint by joint! When the court musician lost his grasp And let his lute begin to rasp Who had him bitten by an asp? Was I Wazir? (Was he Wazir?) Was I Wazir? (Was he Wazir?) I was! The time we caught the man who said I wasn't nice (Joy oh joy That was a time!) I confiscated his brother And then did something or other Involving him dissolving In a vat of lye! When at last, in manner neat and deft I've hacked and hatcheted and cleft Until no-one but me is left I want it clear- (He wants it clear) I WAS Wazir! (And IS Wazir In every single charming and disarming Thing he does!) Was I Wazir? (Wazir he was!) I was!
