Mean Mr. Mustard sleeps in the park

shaves in the dark, tries to save paper

Sleeps in a hole in the road

Saving up to buy him some clothes

Keeps a ten bob note up his nose

Such a mean old man

Such a mean old man


His sister Pam works in a shop

she never stops, she's a go getter

Takes him out to look at the Queen

Only place that he's ever been

Always shouts out something obscene

Such a dirty old man

Dirty old man
