Five And Twenty Years-1936
  Regal Zonophone MR2232 Formby/Gifford/Cliffe

Now there's always alterations, though some are for our good
I'll bet there's lots of things we'd like to alter if we could
But what's the use of looking glum, there's still a lot more years to come.

Says the old maid every evening as beneath her bed she peers
Once more darned unlucky after five and twenty years
Last night Grandma kissed Grandpa, whispered love words in his ears
Said Grandpa "Blimey, nark it after five and twenty years

Time brings changes, though you re in your prime
Everybody changes with time.

At the well one night Rebecca met a young man with ideas
That night she cracked her pitcher after five and twenty years.
An actress felt her right age in the papers it appears
She's been twenty seven now for five and twenty years.

An old man joined the nudists and he said last night, "My dears
I haven't felt like I feel now for five and twenty years."

Time brings changes, though you re in your prime
Everybody changes with time.

Said Mrs. Brown, the widow, "If someone volunteers
I'll take anything in trousers after five and twenty years.

Jones never took his wife out till the boiler burst, poor dears
Then they both went out together after five and twenty years.
To King Sol-o-mon one evening said his favourite wife in tears,
"Must you still sleep with your father after five and twenty years."

Time brings changes, though you re in your prime
Everybody changes with time.

Our village birthrate's falling and no wonder we have fears
The squire's son has been away for five and twenty years.
