HE'S GOING TO MEET HIS GIRL
 
div
 
If you see a chap standing around for an hour
If he stands in a doorway just dodging a shower
If his boots are all glossy, and his hat shining bright
He's going to meet his girl
He buys two penny flowers, one for him, one for her
For fear he should miss her, a yard he won't stir
If he looks in a window to straighten his hair
He's going to meet his girl.

Chorus: Oh! He's going to meet his girl. He's going to meet his girl
He's puffing a choice cigar, you know, with the air of a dashing Lothario
He's going to meet his girl, His brain in a whirly whirl
If he chews little cachous to sweeten his breath
He's going to meet his girl.


There'a sort of a 'dash the expense' kind of air
And he'll count his cash over whilst he's standing there
He's gone without dinners a week - he don't care
He's going to meet his girl
There's two 'S and B's' one and four, and a seat
At the play, that's a dollar, to give her a treat
He don't care if the rest of the week he is beat
He's going to meet his girl.

Chorus: Oh! He's going to meet his girl. He's going to meet his girl
He's puffing a choice cigar, you know, with the air of a dashing Lothario
He's going to meet his girl, His brain in a whirly whirl
If he whistles the tune, 'I'm the Cock of the North'
He's going to meet his girl.


The troopship is steaming back over the sea
On the deck is a soldier who's won the V.C.
All his pain is forgotten, he's as proud as can be
He's going to meet his girl.
He's fought like a hero, for country and King
And papers at home in his praise loudly sing
He don't care for glory, but only one thing
He's going to meet his girl.

Chorus: Oh! He's going to meet his girl. He's going to meet his girl
Her eyes they have haunted his dreams by night
In the African sun and the camp fire's light
He's going to meet his girl, His brain in a whirly whirl
He's prouder of her than the medals he wears
He's going to meet his girl.
