LOOKING FOR MUGS IN THE STRAND
 
div
 

Nowadays a man's got to be clever,
You can't get along without brains.
It's the wise'ns that gets all the money,
And the mugs that get left with the pains.
Well, it isn't my fault that I'm clever,
Though I've oft heard it said London's slow.
When I got to London, a chap said to me,
'Are you looking for rooms?' I said, 'No.'

Chorus: I'm looking for mugs in The Strand,
I'll find one before I've gone far.
It's as easy as winking to find 'em,
That's if you just know where they are.
I'll defy Scotland Yard men to catch me,
I've got ways they don't understand.
'Cos while the detectives are looking for me,
I'll be looking for mugs in The Strand.
