Life is bitter...

This highlight from Bob McKimson's "The Up-Standing Sitter" (1948) was animated by Manny Gould. Gould is responsible for all the arm waving/swinging in McKimson's shorts of this period. 

Here's the lyrics typed out for good measure:

Life is bitter,
For I'm a sitter,
And put little kiddies to bed,
While I tuck the sheets,
Around their feet,
They're busy slappin' my head.

They throw their trains,
And rattle my brains,
My head is full of dents.
No wonder I'm sour,
Goes on by the hour,
And each hour I earn fifty cents.

Now it'll be stuck in your head all week.
