FOLLOW ME, GIRLS

Gay old uncle Charlie, Piccadilly way,
Met a pair of milliners, one early closing day.
Oh, you little darlings, he exclaimed with glee,
I'm your uncle Charlie, you must come along with me.
'Where shall we go?' says all the ladies, fair.
Said uncle Charlie as he waved his cheque-book in the air...

Chorus: 'Follow me, girls. Follow me, girls.
That's if you've got nothing on tonight.
Fall in, fall in, girls of every kind,
Right turn, quick march, don't be left behind.
Do you drink, girls? Do you think, girls,
You could make Ma, let you have the key,
Do you like a bit of fun, when your day's work's done?
Right-ho girls, follow me.'

To the rink he marched them, knelt upon the floor,
Fixed a pair of skates on ninety girls or maybe more,
Then he started skating, had some nasty spills
Lay beneath another who had fainted from the thrill.
They skated out they brought him up the pole
But he shouted as he stumbled down a cellar full of coal...

Chorus: 'Follow me, girls. Follow me, girls.
That's if you've got nothing on tonight.
Fall in, fall in, girls of every kind,
Right turn, quick march, don't be left behind.
Do you drink, girls? Do you think, girls,
You could make Ma, let you have the key,
Do you like a drop of port, with a good old sport?
Right-ho girls, follow me.'

Chorus: 'Follow me, girls. Follow me, girls.
That's if you've got nothing on tonight.
Fall in, fall in, girls of every kind,
Right turn, quick march, don't be left behind.
Do you think, girls? Do you think, girls,
You could make Ma, let you have the key,
Do you like a funny tale, by the old park rail?
Right-ho girls, follow me.'
