AT MY TIME OF LIFE
 
div
 
Now ever since I 'tied the Knot', and which it ain't a day
I've satisfied my husband in my good old-fashioned way
But since he's seen a gal in 'bags' it's knocked him sure as fate
He says I ain't worth that, because I am not up to date

Chorus: There was none o' yer 'Highty Flighty' girls
Yer 'Hi-tiddley Hi-ty' girls
When my old 'Stick in the mud' took me for a wife
Now fancy me a smoking 'fags'
Riding bikes and wearing 'bags'
A leaving off my bits of rags
At my time of life


I likes my drop of 'stimulant' as all good ladies do
A 'arf of quartern 'two out' used to do between the two
But now he says it's only 'rough' as patronises 'pubs'
For all 'New women” wot is 'class' belongs to swagger clubs

Chorus: There was none o' yer 'Highty Flighty' girls
Yer 'Hi-tiddley Hi-ty' girls
When my old 'Thing-a-my-bob' took me for a wife
Now fancy me 'old Mother Scrubs'
Adjoining these 'ere Totties' clubs'
Fancy me deserting the 'pubs'
At my time of life


He'd like to see me got up with a cigarette to puff
A 'Dickey-dirt and tie (as if I wasn't gay enough)
Says I'd look well in 'bloomers' and a 'call me Charlie' hat
If I'd proposed it he'd 'a said “Get out yer old gay cat”

Chorus: There was none o' yer 'Highty Flighty' girls
Yer 'Hi-tiddley Hi-ty' girls
When my old 'Fourpenny bit' took me for a wife
Now fancy me a sportin' shirts
Playing billiards, backing 'certs'
A going about without my skirts
At my time of life
