DEAR OLD SHEPHERD'S BUSH
 
div
 
I'm so delighted, I'm so excited
With my folks I'm going to be united
The train's departing, we'll soon be starting
I'll see my mother, my dad, and my baby brother
And how I'll meet them, how I'll greet them
What a happy, happy day
You see that bustle, well I'd better hustle
Good bye, so long can't stay.

Chorus: I'm on my way back home to dear old Shepherd's Bush
That's the spot where I was born
Can't you hear the porter calling
Queen's Road, Piccadilly, Marble Arch and Bond street
I won't hesitate, I'll reach that gate
Through the crowd you bet I'll push
So find me a seat please anywhere
Crammed tube train but I don't care
My Mummy and Daddy are waiting there
In dear old Shepherd's Bush.


What joy I'm feeling, the tears are stealing
Ten long years I had to slave in Ealing
And I'm not joking, I'm sick of Woking
And as we left Tooting with joy all my heart was shooting
The tram's a packed 'un, it goes to Acton
My tuppence I must pay
I cannot stick it, I've swallowed my ticket
What joy, what bliss, hooray!

Chorus: I'm on my way back home to dear old Shepherd's Bush
That's the spot where I was born
Can't you hear the porter calling
Queen's Road, Piccadilly, Marble Arch and Bond street
I won't hesitate, I'll reach that gate
Through the crowd you bet I'll push
So find me a seat anywhere, please anywhere
Train, tram, tube, bus, I don't care
My Mummy and Daddy are waiting there
In dear old Shepherd's Bush.


Repeat 2nd Chorus:
