"Boy For Sale" as written by and Cole Porter....
[WIDOW CORNEY (spoken)]
Get a good price for him, Mr. Bumble.

[MR. BUMBLE]
One boy,
Boy for sale.
He's going cheap.
Only seven guineas.
That -- or thereabouts.

Small boy...
Rather pale...
From lack of sleep.
Feed him gruel dinners.
Stop him getting stout.

If I should say he wasn't very greedy...
I could not, I'd be telling you a tale.
One boy,
Boy for sale.
Come take a peep.
Have you ever seen as
Nice
A boy
For sale.
