ALL DOWN PICCADILLY

You've heard of him of course
He's London's latest whim
He's made a hit; in fact he's it
Or rather I am him.
The girls all chase him round
He's not an hour to spare
And when he wants to be alone
They ring him up by telephone
Oh naughty one Mayfair
The ladies whisper “Are you there,
Naughty, naughty one Mayfair?”

Chorus: All down Piccadilly Dilly
Round by the Park
You'll see the ladies running after little Willy
Till it gets dark
I'm just shilly shally, shally shilly
I'm fancy free
So though they try to win and woo me
Though in thousands they pursue me
They can't catch me.


With lady Vere de Vere
I'm quite a household pet.
I'm being pursued by Ermintrude
And kissed by Violet.
By Ethel, Win and Maud
I'm very much admired,
And Christobel rang up today
Said, “Come to lunch at Holloway”
Oh naughty one Mayfair
Her feeding tube she'd like to share
With naughty, naughty one Mayfair.

Chorus: Same as first

Chorus: All down Piccadilly Dilly
Round by the Park
You'll see the ladies running after little Willy
Till it gets dark
I'm just shilly shally, shally shilly
I'm fancy free
So even if they suffragette me
I don't think they'll ever get me
They can't catch me.
