SMITH, JONES, ROBINSON AND BROWN

Columbus discovered America, and found it full of rain
Then, Pussy-foot came by train and made it dry again
Many great men have done their bit, to improve the world, they say
But who is it made the Universe just what it is today?

Chorus: Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown
Known in every town, as men of great renown
Their name brought old Britain fame
In every port, at any old sport
They always played the game
Who is it, when danger's near?
Who's the best judge of a glass of beer?
Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown.

Every one of them wise you know
Who found out where the flies all go?
Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown.

When wifey at night, she wants to roam,
Who looks after the kids at home?
Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown.

Lloyd George had a bit of a spar, at Spar, to see that right prevails
He twisted the German's tails - our Georgy boy from Wales
Give him the credit he deserves, for he pulled the nation through
But who was it went to Downing Street, and told him what to do?

Chorus: Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown
Known in every town, as men of great renown
Their name brought old Britain fame
In every port, at any old sport
They always played the game
Who is it gives three hearty cheers
For Mademioselle from Armentieres?
Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown

'Look at the price of coal,' they shout
But who is it goes and digs it out?
Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown

There's Jones, when he rides in the sports of Kings,
The pick of all the batch
And Smith in the billiards match - is jolly hard to catch
Robinsons, yes, and Browns, in the cricket field are cute
But gee, in a football match, who knows the proper way to shoot?

Chorus: Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown
Known in every town, as men of great renown
Their name brought old Britain fame
In every port, at any old sport
They always played the game
Everyone of 'em cheerful souls
Who are the boys to kick the goals?
Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown

Who are the chaps who, all their life,
Never kissed any girl but their wife?
Smith, Jones, Robinson and Brown
