IMMENSEIKOFF
(The Shoreditch Toff)
 
div
 
Ha, my dear friends, pray 'ow de do, I 'opes I see's yer well
Perhaps you don't know who I is, well I'm the Eastern Swell
My chamber is in Shoreditch and I fancy I'm a toff
From top to toe I really think I looks Immenseikoff.

Chorus: Immenseikoff, Immenseikoff
Behold in me a Shoreditch Toff
A toff, a toff, a toff, a Shoreditch Toff
And I think myself Immenseikoff.


At skittles, bowls, and other games I licks 'em all to chalks
At anything where skill's required at first I always walks
You should see me playing billiards 'ow my figure I show off
No one can 'old a cue to me 'cos I'm Immensikoff.

Chorus:

For my togs I used to deal with Poole, but now in these hard times
I ain't now such a lively fool I get my things from Lynes
And 'e gives them to me cheaper 'cos 'E says I shows 'em off
And certainly I really think that I'm Immenseikoff.

Chorus:

With the fair sex, bless'em, need I say that I am number one
It's really quite a bore to me the way the girls do run
Not away from me but after me, ah, you may laugh and scoff
But I can tell you that the girls think me Immensikoff.

Chorus:

By Jingo, Jove, and Jupiter I can't stay here all night
But afore I leave this festive scene I wish to do what's right
That is to thank you one and all for your kindness to this Toff
Who 'opes that your applause tonight will be Immenseikoff.
