I NEVER LET IT UPSET ME
 
div
 
Lots of people think they've got some pluck
'Cos they've stood a bit of real hard luck
And they're always worrying themselves
If they've got no grub upon the shelves
If they can't afford the water rates
And don't live near a pump
And the landlord's cut the water off
Why, they go bang off their chump.

Chorus: But I never let it upset me. I never let it upset me
As long as I can soak my neck in porter
You can keep your' blooming water
If the sun dried up the sea, you see
I'd never, never, never, never let it upset me.


Some men do like picking things to bits
Driving their 'old Dutches' into fits
If their dinner's half an hour late
They go 'barmy', smash the blessed plate
If the Sunday joint's a fortnight old
So tough, it can't be carved
They get mad and sling it in the fire
And they swear that they've been starved.

Chorus: But I never let it upset me. I never let it upset me
I hammer all the bits of meat together
Nail 'em on my boots - it does for leather
True I do study economy -
I never, never, never, never let it upset me.


Talk about your jossers, I've met some
'Cos they owe some rent, they all look glum
Look at me, I've not paid rent for years
Still you never see me shedding tears
Don't forget! my landlord's got some nerve
'Cos I don't brass up the tin
Ev'ry week he comes round and he swears
That he'll put the brokers in

Chorus: But I never let it upset me. I never let it upset me
I grab him by the whiskers on his crumpet
Get him by the 'boko' and I thump it
For, oh lor! I know a thing or three
I never, never, never, never let it upset me.
