You can see by me dress I'm a cleaner
I'm a cleaner without any sham
Give me plenty of scope with a brush and some soap
And you can see what a cleaner I am
But I don't like me job, I'm ambitious
So here on the stage in a play
I should like a nice part in review for a start
For they say I'm like Evelyn Clay.

Chorus: I want to be a principal girl
In a new review, a new review
I'm so tired of cleaning the stage
And some day, I'll be all the rage
I've been in soap-suds all of me life
Since me age was seventeen
So you can bet I'll be a success
For if I'm not clever I'm clean.
Recorded 1936 by Wilkie Bard (1874-1944)
