WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT SELINA?

When Father heard that Jerimiah Brown had turned me down
Father went to look for Jerry all around the town
He found him in the Queen's Arms, he found him in the bar
Then Father started talking, well, you know what father's are
Jerimiah stood looking very sad, when Father said, 'Look here my lad,

Chorus: 'What are you going to do about Selina?
What are you going to do about the girl?
You told her a lot of Tommy rot
You broke her heart and it's the only one she's got
What are you going to do about Selina?
Every day Selina's getting leaner
Through you're doing the bunny hug,
You've ruined the parlour rug
What are you going to do about Selina?'


When Jerry started to explain he looked a perfect gump
On the spot where father hit him Jerry's got a lump
He mumbled out, 'Do have a drink and have what you like with me.'
When Father finished Jerry was as stoney as can be
Then Father knocked him flat upon the mat
And said, 'You can't get off like that,

1st Chorus: 'What are you going to do about Selina?
What are you going to do about the girl?
You told her a lot of Tommy rot
You broke her heart and it's the only one she's got
What are you going to do about Selina?
Every day Selina's getting leaner
From me bedroom overhead
I've heard some funny old things you've said
So what are you going to do about Selina?'


2nd Chorus: 'What are you going to do about Selina?
What are you going to do about the girl?
You told her a lot of Tommy rot
You broke her heart and it's the only one she's got
What are you going to do about Selina?
Every day Selina's getting leaner
You've been buying strings of pearls
At Woolworths for other girls
So what are you going to do about Selina?'
