ALICE

'Ear wot I've to say, 'ear wot I've to say
Alice, only say you will 'ear wot I've to say
Listen to a song I'll sing yer.

If I takes yer for a walk, or I listens to yer talk
My nut gets in a bloomin' whirl
I'm as proud as I can be, you're too nice a girl for me
You ought to wed a dook or hearl
Though I sez it, don't yer 'anker for a toff
Mine's the sort of love it ain't no good to scoff
Lor, my 'eart would break if you said, 'Bill, it's off'
My 'eart would break if you said 'Off.'

'Ear wot I've to say, 'ear wot I've to say
Alice, only say you will 'ear wot I've to say
Listen to a song I'll sing yer.

Get no 'igh falutin' notions in't yer 'ead
You're the only gal as I should like to wed
Don't go off and marry someone else instead
You won't do that, Oh promise me you won't do that.

Oh, tain't fair to lark about, when a poor young cove's in doubt
Do listen cos I'm talkin' straight
Let me 'ave yer answer now, if it's 'No' then I must bow
A cussin' of my crooil fate
From the first time as I saw yer my love grew
Other blokes may come and swear as they'll be loyal true
All they offer may turn out to be a 'do'
Peace, 'appiness and all a 'doo.'

'Ear wot I've to say, 'ear wot I've to say
Alice, only say you will 'ear wot I've to say
Listen to a song I'll sing yer.

You've 'ad lots of time to fink, all I arst's a lovin' wink
I don't want no speeches grand
You can do it if yer try, you 'ave sich an artful eye
Just wink an' I shall understand
But be careful, Alice, do be careful, mind
I don't want to fink 'as 'ow yer wink's unkind
Don't wink unless yer feel inclined.

'Ear wot I've to say, 'ear wot I've to say
Alice, only say you will 'ear wot I've to say
Listen to a song I'll sing yer.
