SHE COST ME SEVEN-AND-SIXPENCE
 
div
 
It's just six months ago since I got married
To a woman at Peckham Rye
But I could not have had much sense
For she cost me seven-and-sixpence

Chorus: She cost me seven-and-sixpence
She cost me seven-and-sixpence
She cost me seven-and-sixpence
I wish I'd bought a dog


We've a big milk pail you see
Where mother keeps her milk
But she left the lid off yesterday
And when I came home, strange to say

Chorus: A mouse was in that milk pail
A mouse was in that milk pail
A mouse was in that milk pail
So I threw our tomcat in


My Pa and I went out one day
And down the country roads did stray
A bull dashed out of a field, you see
And the farmer shouted out to me

Chorus: 'Don't let him see anything red, Sir'
'Don't let him see anything red, Sir'
'Don't let him see anything red, Sir'
So I covered up father's nose


I saw a cat in a house one day
That cat had no tail, strange to say
I said 'What's wrong with that poor cat?'
They said, 'It's Manx - they're all like that'

Chorus: I said 'I never knew it'
I said 'I never knew it'
I said 'I never knew it'
It's a Manx shirt I've got on


A hidden-treasure craze I've got
A clue said, 'Go to a shady spot
Where some birds on a tree you'll see
The look up at the birds that are on that tree

Chorus: I looked up for that treasure
I looked up for that treasure
I looked up for that treasure
Has anybody got a match?


A girl I courted years ago
Got married to a man named Joe
Last week I met her in a train
I said, 'Have you got any family Jane?'

Chorus: She said, 'I've got six thank you'
She said, 'I've got six thank you'
She said, 'I've got six thank you'
I said, 'Oh, don't thank me'


A tramp called round at our house once
Said he, 'I've had no food for months'
I said, 'I know that's very hard
But just go round to our back yard

Chorus: My Father's in the pigsty
My Father's in the pigsty
My Father's in the pigsty
You'll know him by his hat'


A pal of mine once said to me
'Will you knock me up at half-past-three?'
I said, 'Yes', so at half-past one
I knocked him up and said, 'Oh John

Chorus: I've just come round to tell you
I've just come round to tell you
I've just come round to tell you
You've two more hours to sleep'
