AS GOOD AS MONEY IN THE BANK
 
div
 

'Here's to the only girl I love,'
A dashing soldier said.
'So join me lads and drink good health
To the girl I hope to wed.
Ah that's her latest photo there
I just received today,
A picture of my wife-to-be,
And I'm proud to say:

Chorus: 'She's just as good as money in the bank.
She's the sort of girl that's hard to find.
Though far away I'd go,
She'd be true I know.
I can trust the girl I've left behind.'

'My dear old fellow,' said his pal,
'Here's the best of health.
And may you and your lady fair
Have happiness and wealth.'
'But I say, Jack,' cried one in jest,
'Stay always by her side,
Or we might steal your girl away.'
But Jack, in smiles, replied:

Chorus: 'She's just as good as money in the bank.
She's the sort of girl that's hard to find.
Though far away I'd go,
She'd be true I know.
I can trust the girl I've left behind.'

'Here's to the King we all admire,
A man so good and true,
A noble British gentleman
And a jolly fellow too.
Always the first in peace or sport,
The first in everything,
The idol of the nation so
I say: 'Long live the King.

Chorus: He's just as good as money in the bank.
Ev'rything he does is good and kind.
Loved by one and all
In countries great and small,
A better king than him we'll never find.'
