I WILL HAVE A NIGHT TONIGHT
 
div
 
The Missis this morning she packed up her trunk
And I sent her away for a week
I did it I did, to get rid of her jaw
So now I've a chance to speak
I gave her a couple of kisses I did
And I mumured, 'Good bye Jane'
I danced with glee, shook hands with myself
As I pushed her in the train.

Chorus: Te-hi, te-hi, I will have a night tonight
I will te-hi, te-hi, the Missis is out of sight
I'll see all the fun of the fair
Down the Strand and Leicester Square
In the middle I'll part my hair
And I will have a night tonight.


Can you imagine it's forty years since Jane and your humble got wed
Never a minute I've had to myself. By the nose I was always led
I'm going to have a good time I am, and forget all cares and woes
I've got eighteen pence and a threepenny bit, and I don't care if it snows.

Chorus: Te-hi, te-hi, I will have a night tonight
I will te-hi, te-hi, the Missis is out of sight
The thought of it makes me feel quite fit
With the girls I'll make a hit
I'll keep my eye on my threepenny bit
And I will have a night tonight.


I said to the porter, 'Come on, have a drink.'
As I danced about feeling so gay
I got in the bar on the platform
And then I started to shout Hooray
I winked at the barmaid and threw her a kiss,
The people thought I was strange
'Cos every time I paid for a drink,
I shouted, 'Keep the change.'

Chorus: Te-hi, te-hi, I will have a night tonight
I will te-hi, te-hi, the Missis is out of sight
The woman that lives next door to me
Her old man's away at sea
She's invited me in to tea
So I will have a night tonight.
