I NATURALLY RESENTED THE INTRUSION
 
div
 
I hate to be disturbed when I'm busy with my friends
The Mayor looked in the other day, he thinks I've blue blood by the way
We talked of wines, my cook came in about a meal it seemed
She said, 'Excuse me,sir, but will you have your kipper steamed?'

Chorus: Well. I'm not a chap to get upset by trivial affairs
But my cook's remarks re 'kippers' caused confusion
Of course my friend the Mayor thought at least I eat jugged hare
So I naturally resented the intrusion.


One early closing day, of course the day closed early too
Which made the evenings rather dark, my fairy footsteps sought the park
A quiet spot of course, I shouldn't be disturbed, I know
Until I heard the wife say 'Hello, John dear, is that you?'

Chorus: Well. I'm not a chap to get upset by trivial affairs
Still I couldn't greet the wife with much effusion
I should not have cared, you see, but a girl was on my knee
So I naturally resented the intrusion.


I've always liked the upper ten, they've all been friends to me
I often call at Grosvenor Square, I've a lot of chums round there
One early morn at 3 am, I called at forty eight
And saw a beastly burglar, packing up the Earl's best plate

Chorus: Well. I'm not a chap to get upset by trivial affairs
But it wouln't do to cause the least confusion
That he'd got there first, you see
So I naturally resented the intrusion.


I bought a house one day, for which I paid hard cash
A silly thing to do I know, it pays much better when you owe
Three stories high, six rooms in all, 'twas Jerry built, I'm sure
I woke one morn, found all six rooms were on the bottom floor

Chorus: Well. I'm not a chap to get upset by trivial affairs
When the stairs collapsed, of course, it caused confusion
But when the roof and bedroom fell through the kitchen ceiling, well
I naturally resented the intrusion.
