I DIDN'T STOP RUNNING
 
div
 
Whilst I was pawning me only shirt
Somebody whispered, 'Here Master Bert
Down your coal cellar flap, straight no kid,
Somebody's been and dropped twenty quid.

Chorus: And I didn't stop running till I got home
I got home. I got home,
I didn't stop running till I got home
Then I woke up and found I was dreaming.


Once I belonged to a noble Corps
Of rednosed militia and went to war
As soon as the enemy fired a gun
I shouted out, 'Charge' and began to run.

Chorus: I didn't stop running till I got home
I got home. I got home,
I didn't stop running till I got home
And that's how I saved the army.


In the Hotel Metropol I fed
'Bring me a kipper and slice of bread'
When the fat waiter went for the bill
I strolled to the counter and found the till.

Chorus: I didn't stop running till I got home
I got home. I got home,
I didn't stop running till I got home
Then I found that the till was empty.


Into a bootshop I went one day
Ordered a pair of boots all gay
I put them on and said, 'Wait a bit
I'll run round the shop just to see if they fit.'

Chorus: I didn't stop running till I got home
I got home. I got home,
I didn't stop running till I got home
I came out of jail this morning.
