|'E TALKS LIKE A PICTURE BOOK|
|Now at the Pipe and Pewter there's a sort of little club
And 'Inky' in the chair is just immense
At argyment, there ain't a cove wot uses that there pub
Wot can take 'is number down, or talk more sense
'E sez if all of England's welf was piled up in the bank
So as each man 'ad 'is share, and nuffin more
There'd be a quid a week for all, no matter what their rank
Yus, and then 'e said we shouldn't 'ave no poor.
Chorus: Oh, 'e talks just like a picture book, does 'Inky'
Now about the rights of women we 'ave 'eard a lot of talk
Now one night we 'ad an argyment, ter try and fix ther cause
