Unruly boys
Who will not grow up
Must be taken in hand
Unruly girls
Who will not settle down
They must be taken in hand

Unruly boys
Who will not grow up
Must be taken in hand
Unruly girls
Who will not settle down
They must be taken in hand

And a crack on the head

That you said
The things you did

Unruly boys
Who will not grow
Must be taken in hand
Unruly girls
Who will not grow
They must be taken in hand

Ah, oh, no, oh, no
No, no, no, no
Ah, oh, no, oh, no
Ah, oh, no, oh, no
No, no, no
