HE'S MOVED IN A BIGGER HOUSE, NOW
 
div
 
There was a bloke the name of Curly Williams
Who never had a penny in his sky (pocket)
'E wasn't fond of work because it 'urt 'im
If you spoke about a job 'e used to sigh
“E used to loaf outside of public 'ouses
Some days 'e'd go without a bit to eat
'Is clothes were always nicely ventilated
'E lived in a little 'ovel up the street
But 'e's moved in a bigger 'ouse now
Living like a bloomin' Don
In a great big large five story 'ouse
With a real bathroom and gas laid on
Lovely ground all round it
No longer will 'e mooch around the pubs
It ain't a villa, or a mansion what 'e's livin' in
They call it Wormwood Scrubs.

A gentleman what Curly owed a quid to
Was knockin' where 'e used to live this morn
Said 'e to me 'e'd give me two and six pence
If I could tell 'im where it was he'd gorn
Says I “Now tell me why you want to find 'im?”
“To summons 'im,” 'e murmured with a frown
So I thought there'd be no 'arm to tell 'im
And I said when I 'ad got 'is 'alf a crown
“Why 'e's moved in a bigger 'ouse now
Living like a bloomin' Don
In a great big large five story 'ouse
With a real bathroom and gas laid on
Lovely ground all round it
No longer will 'e mump or tell the tale
It ain't a villa, or a mansion what 'e's livin' in
They call it Brixton Jail.
