CHARLIE
 
div
 

I had a good man called Charlie but I left him in a huff,
And said, 'I've had enough!' because he tried to treat me rough.
I've had a few other fellas since who have left me high and dry,
And though it's months and months since I and Charlie said 'good-bye'

Chorus: I'm going to go back to Charlie, going to go back to Charlie,
Charlie's, the only one for me.
Yes, I'm going to go back to Charlie, going to go back to Charlie,
Charlie's, Got Personality.

I went out with a strong-man, from a circus, don't you see,
But he'd been eating onions and was far too strong for me.

Chorus 1: So, I'm going to go back to Charlie, going to go back to Charlie,
Charlie's, the only one for me.
Yes, I'm going to go back to Charlie, going to go back to Charlie,
Charlie's, The only one for me.

Chorus 2: I'm going to go back to Charlie, going to go back to Charlie,
Charlie's, the only one for me.
Yes, I'm going to go back to Charlie, going to go back to Charlie,
Charlie's, Got Personality.

I went out with a sweep, to hear his sweep-stake views
But all that he could talk about was cleaning people's flues.

Chorus :

I used to be cross with Charlie, because I wanted to be free
But now I fail to see, however he put up with me.
I used to show off me temper, oh, I must have been a beast,
I often wonder why he didn't strangle me, at least.

Chorus :

I met a man who fillets fish as thin, as thin can be
And by the way he carried on, he meant to fillet me!

Chorus:

I went out with a baker in his car, just for a ride,
Until I noticed painted on it, 'Families Supplied'!

Chorus:
