IF YOU WANT TO GET ON IN REVUE
 
div
 
Where are the ladies? where are the shadies?
The Lizas, the Lotties and Lous?
Where have they gone to? You know they want to
All go in Revues
Girls don't go off to work, all bus'ness now they shirk
They've got in Revue
On Revue there's now a run, if you'd like to go in one
I'll tell you what to do
Well, you've got to do this and you've got to do that
If you want to get on in Revue
Your Maudies and Bessies must wear pretty dresses
And a dainty little shoe
Plenty of ginger, snap your finger
Let the Johnnies in the stalls get a view
Have a smile on your face, show a little bit of lace
If you want to get on in Revue.

Flossie the Flapper was courting a Sapper
Who from the front came home on leave
And without any warning, he found that she'd gone in
A Revue called 'I'VE SOMETHING UP MY SLEEVE'
The first night that he got back,
To the stage door he made a track
To see his little Flossie, but he sighed
For he found another battalion there
Waiting for his Flossie fair
When he said 'What's your game?' she calmly replied,

'Well, you've got to do this and you've got to do that
If you want to get on in Revue
The night may be 'parky' when a nice young man in Khaki
Says, 'Come in my Lotus for a mile or two'
If it's fine or if it's raining, remember he's in training
'Sit with me at the back' he'll say to you
'It's as soft as a sofa' but you're safer with the chauffeur
If you want to get on in Revue.'
