Dan The Dairy Man-1939
  Regal Zonophone MR3121 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

    

Im [A]in the dairy [D]business and [E7]well known every[A]where
I [B7]might go round and [E7]round my round but Im [B7]always on the [E]square
[A]Milk I serve to [D]Mrs Fox, she's [A]deaf so after [E7]fourteen knocks
I [A]pour it through her [D]letterbox. Im [A]Dan the [E7]dairy[A]man

[A]Mrs Jones is [D]very fat, [A]she slipped on a [E7]butter pat
And [A]underneath her, [D]laid out flat, was [A]Dan the [E7]dairy[A]man
[A]Early every [A7]morning, there's [D]no more sleep I know
Its [B7]moo, moo, moo and a cock a doodle do
When the [E]rooster starts to crow

Of [A]late Ive not seen [D]Mrs Moore, to[A]day a nurse came [E7]to the door
In[A]stead of two pints [D]she had four from [A]Dan the [E7]dairy [A]man
Al[A]though the game is [D]tricky Ive [E7]never yet been [A]caught
Ive [B7]learnt two gallons [E7]make three gills and [B7]six pints make a [E]quart
I [A]serve a pub just [D]round about, the [A]barmaid's keen on [E7]me no doubt
She [A]fills my empties [D]up with stout for [A]Dan the [E7]dairy[A]man

[A]When my eggs they [D]start to crack it [A]smells just like a [E7]gas attack
And [A]one by one they [D]throw 'em back at [A]Dan the [E7]dairy[A]man
[A]Early every [A7]morning, there's [D]no more sleep I know
Its [B7]moo, moo, moo and a cock a doodle do
When the [E]rooster starts to crow
"Oh [A]doctor," shouted [D]one sweet pet can [A]you cure me? I said" you [E7]bet'
It's the [A]finest chance thats [D]happened yet to [A]Dan the [E7]dairy[A]man

When [A]Mr Johnson [D]homeward goes he [A]gives two knocks quite [E7]hefty blows
When [A]its three knocks Mrs [D]Johnson knows its [A]Dan the [E7]dairy [A]man
[A]"Who's been here?" yelled [D]Mrs Best the cook said, [A]"Nobody, [E7]I confessed
[A]Cried the parrot "blimey [D]cant you guess its [A]Dan the [E7]dairy [A]man

[A]Early every [A7]morning, there's [D]no more sleep I know
Its [B7]moo, moo, moo and a cock a doodle do
When the [E]rooster starts to crow
They've [A]just broadcast an [D]S.O.S. Ten pretty [A]girls are in dist[E7]ress
They [A]want to know the [D]new address of [A]Dan the [E7]dairy [A]man
