SILLY FOOL
 
div
 
My Sisters got a fellow and he calls each day
Silly Fool, Silly Fool
If I am in the parlour, then he says 'Run and Play'
Silly Fool, Silly Fool
I says, 'No, not for nuffin' 'cos I thinks I got a claim
Then he gives me a shilling not to spoil his little game
But that room's got a key-hole, I enjoys it just the same
Silly Fool, Silly Fool.

Chorus: Isn't he a silly fool? say, boys
Wasn't he a silly fool? eh, boys
Thought I wasn't fly
But I winked my other eye
'Cause I ain't a silly little fool.


My elder brother's happy 'cos his wife's had twins
Silly Fool, Silly Fool
Well, I suppose it's a punishment for all his sins
Silly Fool, Silly Fool
I went and told the shopman who works round at Mr Doves
I don't much care for them there kids, tho' Mother calls them loves
And when I said, 'There's a pair of kids' he fancied I meant gloves
Silly Fool, Silly Fool.

Chorus:

My uncle from America - oh dear, he is
A Silly Fool. A Silly Fool
He pokes his nose in everything - he's such a quiz.
Silly old fool, silly old fool
He's very much short sighted, tho' he's quite a howling swell
He says to me, 'Are you a little boy or a little girl?'
Now there's a thing to ask me! just as if I couldn't tell
Silly old fool, silly old fool.

Chorus:

I say I've got a fellow - stands so high - that's all
Silly Fool, Silly Fool
The other night, for me, he climbed our garden wall
Silly Fool, Silly Fool
That wall! all over bits of glass - the stupid little elf
And on those broken bottles, just like spikes upon a shelf
He left half his knickerbockers and a portion of himself
Silly Fool, Silly Fool.
