Blackpool Prom-1944
  Regal Zonophone MR3750 Sievier

Ive just been on my holidays, to Blackpool by the sea,
Although Im feeling mighty fit my feet are troubling me.
Ive queued for hours and hours but I must say it was grand,
To get as near as half a mile to several miles of sand.

On Blackpool prom on Saturday I had a lovely time,
I queued for breakfast, I queued for lunch, I queued for bananas in a bunch
I queued for a glass of bitter, the old woman was watching the pram
I queued for the Beryl's gin and lime, it really was a pantomime
Before I got served they shouted "Time", so I queued for a queue in a tram.

On Blackpool prom on Saturday, oh what a lovely day,
I queued for oysters, I queued for rock
I queued for a view of the Town Hall clock.
I queued for the fun of queuing and I murmured "what a do"
A game of snooker would be great, I queued to put my name on a slate
Then after sixty minutes wait, I queued in a queue for a cue.

On Blackpool prom on Saturday, the women looked simply grand,
I queued for the dark uns, I queued for the fair,
I queued for a chance to have my share,
Oh boy was I up and doing, and I murmured "I love you",
Her figure it was like a dream, quite big at the front and broad at the beam,
But it was the Missus that Id seen, so I flew from the queue, wouldnt you?
