Quotes:


These Foolish Things


-"Top Hat and Tails" and "The Night Club"


A bit of doggrel from the mess

On the chest of a barmaid from Sale
Was tatooed all the prices of ale
Whilst on her behind
For the sake of the blind
Was precisely the same but in braille

-Captain Peacock "Our Figures are Slipping"


Bread and Drippin'

Bread and drippin'
Bread and drippin'
Makes the stuff for me..
If it's given me every day
Stowin' it away!
I think there's worse off except for me
As I eat my bread and drippin'
A lump of bread as big as your head
To dip in the drip drip drippin' !

-from Happy Returns


Mighty Lak' a Rose

Sweetest little feller, Ev'rybody knows;
Dunno what to call him, but he's mighty lak' a rose!
Lookin' at his mammy with eyes so shiny blue,
Makes you think that heav'n is comin' close to you.

When he's there a-sleepin' in this li'l place
Think I see the angels lookin' thro' the lace,
When the dark is fallin', when the shadows creep,
Then they come on tiptoe to kiss 'im in his sleep.

Sweetest little feller, Ev'rybody knows;
Dunno what to call him, but he's mighty lak' a rose!
Lookin' at his mammy with eyes so shiny blue,
Makes you think that heav'n is comin' close to you.

-from Friends and Neighbours


Masculine Women, Feminine Men

Masculine women, feminine men
Which is the rooster, which is the hen?
It's hard to tell them apart today, that way
Sister is busy learning to shave
Brother just got a permanent wave
It's hard to tell them apart today, hey-hey
Girls were girls and boys were boys when I was a tot.
Now we don't know who is who or even what's what.
Knickers and trousers, baggy and wide,
Nobody knows who's walking inside --
Those masculine women and feminine men.
