8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Your pres -ence is re -quest -ed, Wrote lit -tle John -ny White.
But with this in -vi -ta -tion, There is a stip -u -la -tion,
When you at -tend this par -ty, You'll all be treat -ed right.
But there's a wild and wool -ly wo -man, You boys can't in -vite.
Now, You can bring Pearl she's a darn nice girl but don't bring Lu -lu,
You can bring Rose with the turned up nose but don't bring Lu -lu.
Lu -lu al -ways wants to do, What we boys don't want her to,
When she struts her stuff a -round, Lon -don bridge is fall -ing down.
You can bring cake or por -ter -house steak but don't bring Lu -lu,
Lu -lu gets blue and she goes "coo -koo", Like the clock up -on the shelf.
She's the kind of smart -y, Who breaks up ev -ry par -ty,
Hull -a -b loo loo, Don't bring Lu -lu, I'll bring her my -self.
