PUT THAT GRAMOPHONE RECORD ON AGAIN
 
div
 
After supper Ernest sat at home with his wife May
Neither of them knew just how to pass the time away
He said, 'Have a dance, my dear.' She cried, 'You silly elf
'If you play the piano I can't dance all by myself.'
At last she took her husband to her side
And pointing to the gramophone she said,

Chorus: 'Put that gramophone record on again
I want to dance to that jazz.
Round the room we'll one-step galore
Dance out through the door
Come back again once more
I never found when I hear that sound
Put another needle on and turn the handle round
It's a record breaking melody
But if you break the record it will alter you see
My delight every night is to dance to that strain
So put that record on again.


Once a lawyer called on her and, bending low, he said
'I regret to tell you that your Patriach is dead
He left you a fortune, you are rich as rich can be
Fifty thousand pounds a year to come to you,' he said
When Ernest told the news to May she smiled
She grabbed hold of the lawyer chap and cried,

Chorus: 'Put that gramophone record on again
I want to dance to that jazz .
Round the room we'll one-step galore
Dance out through the door
Come back again once more
I never found when I hear that sound
Put another needle on and turn the handle round
It's a record breaking melody
But if you break the record it will alter you see
My delight every night is to dance to that strain
So put that record on again.
