Hiss & Boo

Daisy Daisy, give me your answer do,
I'm half crazy all for the love of you,
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage,
But you'd look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle made for two !

My old man said "Follow the van,
And don't dilly dally on the way!"
Off went the van with me 'ome packed in it,
I followed on with me old cock linnet,
But I dillied, I dallied, I dallied and I dillied,
Lost me way and don't know where to roam,
Oh you can't trust the Specials
Like the Old Time Coppers,
When you can't find your way 'ome.

It's a long way to Tipperary,
It's a long way to go,
It's a long way to Tipperary,
To the sweetest girl I know
Goodbye Piccadilly,
Farewell Leicester Square
It's a long long way to Tipperary
But my heart's right there.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside,
I do like to be beside the sea,
I do like to stroll along the prom, prom, prom,
Where the brassbands play
So just let me be beside the seaside,
I'll be beside myself with glee;
And there's lots of girls beside,
I should like to be beside,
Beside the seaside, beside the sea!


Any old iron, any old iron,
Any, any, any old iron?
You look neat, talk about a treat,
You look dapper
from your napper to your feet,
Dressed in style, brand new tile,
With your father's old green tie on;
But I wouldn't give you tuppence,
For your old watch chain,
Old iron, Old iron.

Boiled beef and carrots,
Boiled beef and carrots,
That's the stuff for your "Darby Kel",
Makes you fat and it keeps you well.
Don't live like vegetarians,
On food they give to parrots,
From morn till night blow out your "kite"
On boiled beef and carrots.

Come, Come, Come and make eyes at me
Down at the Old Bull and Bush,
Come, Come, drink some port wine with me,
Down at the Old Bull and Bush,
Hear the little German band,
Dah Dee Diddy dah dah dah,
Just let me hold your hand dear,
Do, Do Come and have a drink or two
Down at the Old Bull and Bush!

Goodbye-ee, Goodbye-ee,
Wipe the tear, baby dear, from your eye-ee
Tho' it's hard to part, I know,
I'll be tickled to death to go,
Don't cry-ee, don't sigh-ee,
There's a silver lining in the sky-ee!
Bon Soir, old thing! Cheerio! Chin-Chin,
Nah-Poo, Toodle-oo, Goodbye-ee.
