FOR A DAY OR TWO
 
div
 

P'raps you've heard of young Reggie, the popular beau
And the time that he has - which is gaudy
He's a smart Saville Row sort of chap, don't you know
And he's made an impression on Maudie
When Maud in the A.B.C. shop serves the tea
And hands round the buns like a queen
Says Reggie, 'You ripper! just listen to me
You're the neatest young sweetest young thing that I've seen.'

Chorus: For a day or two
He will make quite a fuss of the girl for a day or two
He will call her a peach or a pearl
She will ask him to buy her a ring
And he'll say, 'Yes, dear, anything!'
Then she'll wink her left optic - which means I love you
For a day or two.

Young Reggie remarked, 'Ev'wy day I come heah
And to dwop you is out of the question
Though your tea and your toast and your scones make me queer
And your pastwy upsets my digestion
When you put in the sugah to save me the job
With a smile that is thicker than jam
And you write on my ticket and punch it - one bob
Then I feel that I weally don't know where I am.'

Chorus: For a day or two
He will make quite a fuss of the girl, for a day or two
He will call her a peach or a pearl
When he ordered one bun and one kiss
She marconied a couple- like this
Said she, 'I'm so busy, but perhaps these will do
For a day or two.'

He had lunched at the Carlton, but couldn't say why
He had gazed on the wine when 'twas rosy
And his eyeglass somehow would not stay in his eye
When he drove to the Cafe quite dozy
He called for some buns and he ordered some tea
Soon brought in by Maud with the curls
'There seem to be several of you,' s
