TWIGGY VOO?
 
div
 
When you're giving folks advice,
Or you're telling stories nice
I shouldn't tell the end if I were you
For to cut it short is best,
You can let them guess the rest
Twiggy voo? my boys twiggy voo?
When young Jones at number four,
Rushes headlong from the door
Calls a cab says 'Drive to Doctor Lud-knows-who'
Returns with doctor, but, it's worse,
When he next goes for the nurse
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?

Chorus: Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?
Well of course it stands to reason that you do
All the force and meaning in it
You can 'tumble' in a minute
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?

With a deal of female fuss,
A girl was signalling a bus
Waved her gamp and shouted just as ladies do
Oh conductor do you go
As far as - well - er Pimlico
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?
Then she got the bus to stop
While she clambered on the top
And a gust of wind along the roadway blew
The conductor scratched his head,
Was it 'railways' that he said
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?

Chorus:

Now a lover and his lass
Were exchanging spoony gas
And I thought they'd keep it up till all was blue
For I heard him plain and clear
Say, 'Sit closer to me dear'
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?
Then I heard a kick and bark
And a scuffle in the dark
And the Father gave the girl a welting too
'I'll teach you play at shops'
And the bulldog licked his chops
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?

Chorus:

When with sly and stealthy feet
Some young man walks down the street
Looking round to see who's watching what he'll do
And you see him quickly pop
Into uncle's famous shop
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?
He comes out into the light
With his frock coat buttoned tight
And his waistcoat quite hidden from the view
Boy says 'What's the time please, Gus?'
Gus says, 'Don't know' then says, 'Cuss'
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?

Chorus:

When a girl goes to be wed
She is nearly off her head
And upon my word she don't know what to do
She is frightened for o lor
She'd never done such things before
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?
The happy man with ring has come
Wants to shove it on her thumb
And the couple of them get in such a stew
Then an old girl standing by
Says 'Poor soul' and heaves a sigh
Twiggy voo? my boys, twiggy voo?

Chorus:
 
Twiggy Voo? = Do you understand?
