WE KNEW WHAT SHE MEANT
by
Ronnie Barker

Recorded by The Two Ronnies on the 'Jehosaphat & Jones' album

My cousin Pauline was a Tennesse queen,
As pretty a critter as you've ever seen,
But she was so dumb that no matter how she tried,
When she opened her mouth she put her foot right inside.

We knew what she meant, we knew what she meant,
We heard what she said but we knew what she meant.

She invited the preacher to her house they say,
She said, it's a party, I'm 19 today.
Ma’s bought me a dress and a bonnet so cute,
So come round and see me in my birthday suit.

We knew what she meant, we knew what she meant,
We heard what she said but we knew what she meant.

She went to a dance hall one night on her own,
And she smiled at a young man who stood all alone
He remarked how he'd not had the pleasure before
And she answered, 'come on then, let's get on the floor'

One day she went into a department store,
And she said to the guy who was stood by the door,
I need some material to make a new belt,
Perhaps you can tell me where I can get felt

We knew what she meant, we knew what she meant,
We heard what she said but we knew what she meant.

A beautiful pear tree in her garden does grow,
She decided to enter the fruit in a show.
So she visited her rivals and said in advance,
When the judges see my pear, you don't stand a chance.

She said I once met a fellow with dark wavy hair,
So we rushed off to Alaska for a quick love affair,
But I came back disappointed with a cold and a cough,
We were both frozen stiff and I just broke it off.

We knew what she meant, we knew what she meant,
We heard what she said but we knew what she meant.
