Ladles And Jellyspoons


Ladles and Jellyspoons:
I come before you
To stand behind you
And tell you something
I know nothing about.

Next Thursday,
The day after Friday,
There'll be a ladies' meeting
For men only.

Wear your best clothes
If you haven't any,
And if you can come
Please stay home.

Admission is free,
You can pay at the door.
We'll give you a seat
So you can sit on the floor.

It makes no difference
Where you sit;
The kid in the gallery
Is sure to spit.

Dear Ladies and Jellyspoons

I come before you
to stand behind you
And tell you something
I know nothing about

Next Thursday,
which is Good Friday,
there will be a Mothers meeting,
for Fathers only.

Wear your best clothes
if you haven't any,
and if you can come,
please stay at home.

Admission's free
pay at the door.
Take a seat
and sit on the floor.

It makes no difference
where you sit
The man in the gallery's
sure to spit.

Thank you Cheryl for providing the source for this. My cousin taught me this in the early 60's-except he said the women's club is holding a meeting for men only and the man at the popcorn stand will be sure to spit

I memorized this poem in 1977. Almost everywhere I find it on the internet, it is missing its last few lines. They are as follows: "We thank you for your unkind attention. The next number will be the four corners of the round table." The poem is found in the book, A Rocket in My Pocket, ed by Carl Withers, publ in 1948. What usually gets quoted is on page 199. BUT the poem continues on the next page, 200, the last page of the book. You can check out an epub copy of the book and all its many other rhymes and poems from
