Dare Devil Dick-1936
  Regal Zonophone MR2295 Gifford/Cliffe

Youve heard of Dick Turpin and bold Robin Hood, Im known as one of the click.
A bit of gangster a terror to all, the lads call me Dare Devil Dick.
Im fond of a fight over fighting I gloat, Im always the first to hold anyones coat.
Dare Devil Dick up to every trick, Dare Devil Dick thats me

Only last week without saying a word
I travelled first class when my ticket was third.
Im a demon, Im devil may care, full of villainy.
Full fare on me ticket they soon made me pay.
But I got me own back the very next day.
I bought two first class tickets and walked all the way.
Dare Devil Dick thats me.

Dare Devil Dick up to every trick, Dare Devil Dick thats me
With a girl on a raft I was wrecked on the sea.
I was in a short shirt, and she wore a chemise.
"Hoist a single" soon she started to shout
"And save us from the sea".
I took off my shirt "They wont see that" she raved
So I grabbed her chemise on the mast it soon waved
When she smiled I said "Gee I dont want to be saved"
Dare Devil Dick thats me.

Dare Devil Dick up to every trick, Dare Devil Dick thats me
For a picnic I went with my sweetie one day
We romped in the fields and we sat in the hay
It was lovely till she cried in alarm.
"Why, theres a bumble bee".
"Oh be brave and find it", I shouted out "Where?"
She said "Where Im sitting its underneath there"
I got stung on the hand, ah but I didnt care
Dare Devil Richard thats me.
