Bally Bottom Button

Bally Bottom Button

Buttons are a blinkin bally nuisance you'll agree,
Buttonin' bally buttons is a blinkin' bore to me,
If I had no bally buttons on my clothes I know,
I could put more dinners where good dinners ought to go,
Supper is the only decent meal I ever get,
And I do enjoy my suppers by the way,
For I undo my buttons but each morning when I wake,
I always call the missis up and say.

     I can't do my bally bottom button up,
     Can't do my bally bottom button up,
     And it's so tight and it serves me right,
     Must have eaten too much grub last night,
     I can't do my bally bottom button up,
     And though you think it's fun,
     What's the use of buttoning the other bally buttons,
     When the bally bottom button's undone.

     What's the use of buttoning the other bally buttons,
     When the bally bottom button's undone.

Now in the street one afternoon I heard the preacher say,
If you've only got the will you'll always find the way,
Don't say you can't do a thing just try until you do,
Others have done great and mighty deeds why shouldn't you,
Then he said just look at that intelligent young man,
When the crowd all looked at me I got a shock,
Says he there's nothing in the world a chap like him can't do,
And I replied oh yes there is old cock.

Now I became a burglar once as it was rather tame,
But I found that burgling was a very risky game,
By mistake I broke into a turkish bath one night,
I was in the women's section lummee what a sight,
Then I saw a lady with her eyes all full of steam,
And in my direction she began to grope,
She took me for a maid and asked if I would wash her back,
I said I shan't 'cos if my hands get in the soap.
My bally bottom button up I cannot do.

     My bally bottom button up I cannot do,
     My bally bottom button up I cannot do,
     Grub I must have eaten to much of last night,
     And it serves me right because it fits so tight,
     My bally bottom button up I cannot do,
     And though I know that fun you think it is,
     What's the use of having an unbuttoned bottom button,
     When the other bally buttons are did.
