I WANT TO BE PALLY WITH EVERYONE
 
div
 
It's always the case, when you've got a kind face
People seem to impose upon you
Last week I got wed and it fair turned my head
When the parson made one of us two
I got so excited I started to kiss
Everyone there excepting the bride
When she caught hold of me and said, 'Don't act the goat.'
I caught hold of her and replied,

Chorus: 'I want to be pally with everyone
Everyone pally with me
Oh let me be happy, for now you're my wife
It may be the last chance I'll have in my life
Take and give, live and let live
That's how the world should be
I want to be pally with everyone
Everyone pally with me.'


Now football's a game in which I've made a name
As a goalkeeper none can beat me
In a big match one day I was punching away
When my wife came and brought me my tea
Our side scored first goal, and while I drank my tea
The other side came and scored nine
And when our Captain grumbled at me
I said, 'well! our opponents are all friends of mine.'

Chorus: 'I want to be pally with everyone
Everyone pally with me
The reason they scored all those goals against me
'Twas my dinner time, I was having my tea
Take and give, live and let live
That's how the world should be
I want to be pally with everyone
Everyone pally with me.'


I'm always a sport when I've had a small port
And last New Year's Day in the Strand
Two small ports I had, felt myself going mad
And I doubled my fist in my hand
I hit a big policeman on the top of the nose
Next morning I stood in the dock
When the magistrate asked me what I had to say
I answered like this, 'Old Cock!'

Chorus: 'I want to be pally with everyone
Everyone pally with me
Down here in the dock I feel lonely, I do
So please MIster Judge let me sit there with you
Take and give, live and let live
That's how the world should be
I want to be pally with everyone
Everyone pally with me.'


I fell off a bus, and a crowd made a fuss
And an ambulance took me away
Winter to Spring with my leg in a sling
In a hospital I had to lay (why not stay?)
The nurse came and told me my leg must come off
And wished me a Happy New Year
She said, 'You don't mind,' I said, 'No not at all
You know your own business, old dear,'

Chorus: 'I want to be pally with everyone
Everyone pally with me
I don't mind your taking my leg off, Nurse Jane
If you'll keep me here till I grow one again
Take and give, live and let live
That's how the world should be
I want to be pally with everyone
Everyone pally with me.'
