Song from musical "Lady Be Good!" is titled "Who Takes Care of the Caretaker's Daughter?" and is written by Chick Endor.

Say, who takes care of the caretaker's daughter
While the caretaker's busy taking care?

Marconi made the telegraph
And Dempsy is the champ I know that
Babe Ruth makes home runs
And that Cleopatra was a vamp.
I know that Spark Plug is a horse
I'm a smart guy, there's no doubt.
But there's one thing that I don't know
And I'm dying to find out:

Who takes care of the caretaker's daughter
While the caretaker's busy taking care?
Gee, oh gosh, oh gee; that's what worries me.
I know that the caretaker must take care
And while he's taking care, she's alone somewhere.
Who takes care of the caretaker's daughter
While the caretaker's busy taking care?

While the caretaker's busy taking care
I wonder who takes care of his daughter.
Gee, oh gosh, oh gee; that's what worries me.
I wonder who cares for the caretaker's daughter
Who checks and sees if she does like she ought'er.
While the caretaker's busy taking care
I wonder who takes care of his daughter?

I know that chickens lay the eggs
And milk comes from a cow.
I know that money comes from banks
Because I'm smart that way some how. I
know there ain't no Santa Claus
So that proves I'm not so slow.
But at night I can not sleep
Cause there's one thing I don't know.

Who watches the nightwatchman's daughter
While the nightwatchman's busy watching night
Gee, oh gosh, oh gee; that's what worries me.
I know that the nightwatchman must watch night
But who watches her to see if all's right?
Who watches the nightwatchman's daughter
While the nightwatchman's busy watching night?

Who tends the doortender's daughter
While the doortender's busy tending door?
Gee, oh gosh, oh gee, that's what worries me.
I know that the door tender must tend door
And that he goes to work about half past four.
Who tends door for the doortender's daughter
While the doortender's busy tending door?

Who keeps house for the housekeeper's daughter
While the housekeep's busy keeping house?
Gee, oh gosh, oh gee; that's what worries me.
I know that the housekeeper must keep house
And when rats have a child they call it a mouse.
Who keeps house for the housekeeper's daughter
While the housekeep's busy keeping house?

Who oversees the overseer's daughter
When the overseer goes to oversee?
Gee, oh gosh, oh gee; that's what worries me.
I know that the overseer must oversee
And you can't play tag with a bumble-bee.
But who sees the overseer's daughter
While the overseer's gone to oversee.

Who makes the dressmaker's daughter
While the dressmaker's busy making dresses?
Gee, oh gosh, oh gee; that's what worries me.
Who makes the daughter while he makes the dresses?
I know she's alright, she's just full of yeses.
