“Three Little Maids” (with video)
April 15, 2010
Let’s look at something funny.
This song is famous in America. But maybe you’ve never heard it before…
watch the song here:
Actually, the video below is one reason I know this song. It was in many cartoons and TV shows when I was a child. It was actually my first look at Japanese culture! But it is very different from real Japanese culture.
My favorite words are:
“Everything is a source of fun
Nobody’s safe, for we care for none
Life is a joke that’s just begun
Three little maids from school!”
Now, every time I see 3 young Japanese girls laughing together I think of this song. Seriously.
Thanks for reading!

p.s. Here are the complete lyrics (this is very advanced English): 歌詞の全文です。でもかなり難しいよ！
ARTIST: Gilbert and Sullivan TITLE: Three Little Maids from School Lyrics [Mikado] Three little maids from school are we Pert as a school-girl well can be Filled to the brim with girlish glee Three little maids from school Everything is a source of fun Nobody's safe, for we care for none Life is a joke that's just begun Three little maids from school *Three little maids who, all unwary Come from a ladies' seminary Freed from its genius tutelary Three little maids from school Three little maids from school One little maid is a bride, Yum-Yum Two little maids in attendance come Three little maids is the total sum Three little maids from school Three little maids from school From three little maids take one away Two little maids remain, and they Won't have to wait very long, they say Three little maids from school Three little maids from school *REPEAT
