TOPSY TURVEY
 
div
 
One frequently acts, topsy-turvey wise
Yet no one would call you a clown
Now, if you're in bed and the front door bell rings
You have to get up to get down
And then if you happen to be upstairs
Amusing yourself with a pup
You're horse is brought round for your afternoon ride
Then you have to get down to get up.

Chorus: Now it seems very queer, but it's perfectly clear
And as sure as a penny is round
You've got to get down if you want to get up
And you've got to get up to get down.


When peddling a bicycle up a steep hill
You're breath and your power have all gone
You'll walk if you wish to proceed just the same
If you want to get up you'll get down
And if when out hunting you chose to dismount
In scarlet, a regular toff
And suddenly find yourself chased by a bull
Then you have to get on to get off.

Chorus: Now it seems very queer, but it's perfectly clear
And no matter how much you may scoff
You've got to get off if you want to get on
And you have to get on to get off.


When a lady steps in her bathing machine
You'll wait for the fun to begin
For if she wishes a dip in the sea
She'll have to get out to get in
And if in the water she wishes to quit
For her bathing machine she will shout
The reason for which is perfectly clear
She'll have to get in to get out.

Chorus: Now it seems very queer, but it's perfectly clear
And there can't be a shadow of doubt
You've got to get out if you want to get in
And have to get in to get out.
