MRS SCOTT
 
div
 
My pal Mrs Scott she welcomed home her sailor lad
He'd come back from China to see his mum and dad
Mrs Scott she gave a party, everyone was gay
All the neighbours gathered round to celebrate the day
The wine began to flow, then we all jazzed about
We got so hot and got so dry, we all began to shout,

Chorus: 'Come on Mrs Scott, let's have another spot
Another little spot won't hurt us Mrs Scott
'Cos we're so glad to be in your company
We've all come round to cheer you up 'cos everything is free
We're such dear old pals, jolly old pals
And you're the only one we've got.'
We kept spotting all the day and kept shouting out hooray
And poor old Mrs Scott, she was paying for the lot.


Mr Scott who's got one leg kept hopping round and round
Till he overbalanced and he fell upon the ground
Dragged old Mrs Scott with him and half a dozen more
There they tried to do the Russian dance upon the floor
Then her sailor lad we sprinkled with perfume
Then we told him, 'You're not going up in Mabel's room.'

Chorus: 'Come on Mrs Scott, let's have another spot
Another little spot won't hurt us Mrs Scott
'Cos we're so glad to be in your company
We've all come round to cheer you up 'cos everything is free
We're such dear old pals, jolly old pals
And you're the only one we've got.'
We sang songs about the foam,
Nearly shipwrecked all the home
And poor old Mrs Scott, she was paying for the lot.


Chorus: 'Come on Mrs Scott, let's have another spot
Another little spot won't hurt us Mrs Scott
'Cos we're so glad to be in your company
We've all come round to cheer you up 'cos everything is free
We're such dear old pals, jolly old pals
And you're the only one we've got.'
Then we played at Blind Man's Bluff,
Some played a bit too rough
And poor old Mrs Scott, she was the roughest of the lot.
