IT'S FINE

I've been tee-total all my life, perhaps I do not look it
But as a true historic fact you may safely book it
But I was told through being T.T., my best years I had wasted
So Yesterday, to please a friend, some special Scotch I tasted.

Chorus: It's fine, it's fine, it's made me thirst for more
And how I've wished I'd never missed tasting it before
I've ordered quite a cellar full, in future I shall dine
Of nothing else but Special Scotch, it's fine, it's fine, it's fine.


I spent my holidays last year at a French place called Bolony
And I shall go again this year, that's if I'm not stony
What I enjoy most when I am there is not the splendid weather
It is the fact that all the gents and ladies bathe together.

Chorus: It's fine, it's fine, to join them on the shore
And how I've wished I'd never missed going there before
The ladies in their bathing costumes show their charms divine
And you hold them while they learn to swim, it's fine, it's fine, it's fine


My greatest trouble's been for years to find a decent lodging
From one place to another I have always been a-dodging
But I have found a place at last, my landlady's a widow
She's got no other lodgers in, not even got a kid oh.

Chorus: It's fine, it's fine, I'll not shift any more
And how I've wished I'd never missed lodging there before
I never stay out late, oh no, I get to bed by nine
Then she comes up and tucks me in - it's fine, it's fine, it's fine.


Now I was brought up very good, my mother kept me level
She'd say don't go to Music Halls, they'll lead you to the devil
I took the risk and went last week, why did I ever dally?
I nearly went clean off my dot when I first saw the ballet.

Chorus: It's fine, it's fine, I'm going to see some more
And how I've wished I'd never missed seeing it before
They threw their legs, well, right up here, and danced the Serpentine
And then to see them do the splits - it's fine, it's fine, it's fine.
