Old habits are hard to break. Georgy bothered the little girls and made them cry when he was young, as long as the boys didn't interrupt his action. Now that he's retired, all washed up and can't chase them any more, you can still find him hanging out in the playgrounds whispering, "Candy little girl?".

 

GEORGY PORGY

 Georgy Porgy, pudding and pie,

Kissed the girls and made them cry.

When the boys came out to play,

Georgy Porgy ran away.
