THE MAN WHO BROKE THE BANK AT MONTE CARLO
 
div
 
I've just got here through Paris, from the sunny southern shore
I to Monte Carlo went, just to raise the winter's rent
Dame fortune smiled upon me, as she'd never done before
And I've now such lots of money I'm a gent
Yes, I've now such lots of money I'm a gent.

Chorus: As I walk along the Bois Boulong
With an independent air
You can hear the girls declare
"He must be a millionaire"
You can hear them sigh and wish to die
You can see them wink the other eye
At the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo.


I stay in doors till after lunch and then my daily walk
To the great triumphal arch in one triumphal march
Observed by each observer with the keenness of a hawk
I'm a mass of money, linen, silk and starch.

Chorus:

I patronised the tables at the Monte Carlo hell
Till they hadn't got a sou for a Christian or a Jew
So I quickly went to Paris for the charms of mademoiselle
Who's the loadstone of my heart what can I do.

Chorus:
