Delivering The Morning Milk-1941
  Regal Zonophone MR3472 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

In the streets just aft'er dawn when you can't hear a sound
With my milkcart everymorn' I go upon my round
I've seen a window open wide, when delivering the morning milk
I've seen a girl asleep inside, when delivering the morning milk
Her bedrooms small, there' s too much heat
Her tootsies stick out in the street,
I hang my milk cans on her feet
When delivering the morning milk

While dancing wives play fast and loose, I'm delivering the morning milk
But I don't worry what's the use, when delivering the morning milk.
Now one chap said "my wife I'll sock, She's not home yet and it' s twelve o' clock"
I said "It's later than that old cock
I'm delivering the morning milk" . . . .

Girls out walking look sublime, when new frocks they've just bought
But see them in the morning time, when they shout "leave a quart"
I've heard snoring loud and deep, when delivering the morning milk
I've seen girls walk in their sleep, when delivering the morning milk
One girl as mad as mad could be, "deliver up my child" said she
"deliver what?" I said "no not me, I'm delivering the morning milk"

I've seen a lady in her bath, when delivering the morning milk
I've seen a man creep up the path, when delivering the morning milk
I heard him whisper "here's a rope, slip on something and let's elope"
Then I saw the lady slip on the soap, as I was delivering the morning milk

I've seen burglars on the job when delivering the morning milk
An old maids bedroom they will rob, when delivering the morning milk
All night the burglar mucks about, the spinster doesn't scream or shout
And when she kicks the burglar out, I'm delivering the morning milk
