OUR'S IS A NICE 'OUSE, OUR'S IS

Of all the 'ouses in the world there isn't one like our's is
We never pay the rent yet the Landlord never rows's
We've got no windows in the 'ouse, it's healthy, lets the air in
It also lets the foul air out when Father he starts swearing.

Chorus: Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is
What a nice little 'ouse our's is
The roofs on the top of this pretty little shack
The front's at the front, and the back's at the back
Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is
We've got no rats or mouses
It's cheap, cheap, cheap, sweet, sweet, sweet
Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is.


Of all the gardens in the world there isn't one like our's is
Salmon tins are growing there and other pretty flowers's
Broken bottles, hobnailed boots, you bet and put your bobs on
Some people grow their ears of corn, we grow thick ears with knobs on

Chorus: Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is
What a nice little 'ouse our's is
The bell doesn't knock and the knocker doesn't ring
The birds build their nests round the eaves in the Spring
Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is
The rain comes through in showers's
It's cheap, cheap, cheap, sweet, sweet, sweet
And an old tune Chu Chin Chow is.


Our 'ouse in Winter keeps us warmer through running for the plumber
The beetles make your blood run cold, which keeps you cool in Summer
I think we're leaving this 'ouse soon, in fact, tonight we may do
We've chopped the last door up today, we always leave when they go

Chorus: Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is
What a nice little 'ouse our's is
It has no bad habits, no cocaine in the coke
Locks don't get oiled and the chimney doesn't smoke
Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is
My bolshoi blood it rouses
It's cheap, cheap, cheap, sweet, sweet, sweet
Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is.


Of all the fathers in the world, there isn't one like our's is
Some desperate people hold up banks, he holds up public houses
We fiddle for a living and the police have their suspicions
But though we keep on fiddling we are none of us musicians.

Chorus: Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is
What a nice little 'ouse our's is
The roofs on the top of this pretty little shack
The front's at the front, and the back's at the back
Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is
We've got no rats or mouses
It's cheap, cheap, cheap, sweet, sweet, sweet
Our's is a nice 'ouse, our's is.
