PASSING THE TIME AWAY
by
Max Miller

When the nights get nice and dark
I always go in the park,
I only go there for a lark,
Passing the time away.

I hear lovers bill and coo,
You'd be surprised if I told you
All the naughty things they do,
While passing the time away.

The other night a loving couple,
Courting close to me,
She was just turned twenty one
He was eighty three.

The rain came down, they'd got no gamp
They both sat down, the grass was damp,
He couldn't get up,,, he'd got the cramp,
Passing the time away.

Oh that girl was very nice
She didn't take her ma's advice,
Once, she did the same thing twice,
Passing the time away.

Her boyfriend took her to Southend,
For the afternoon to spend,
She must have stayed the whole weekend,
Passing the time away.

He took her on the sands,
Then he took her on the pier...
He was in the Navy
So he had the right idea.

Though she lives next door to me,
She's as sweet as sweet can be,
Now she's worried, I can see,
Passing the time away.
