Frank On His Tank-1942
  Regal Zonophone MR3619 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

Our Frank has joined the tank corps and means to do his bit,
Hes wide awake and no mistake, hes absolutely it.
Oh he does look a swank, does Frank on his tank
He does look a swank does Frank
See him dashing along with a clickerty clickerty clank
He hasnt done much fighting yet, quite new are his togs
Hes only knocked down policemen and run over fourteen dogs
But he does look a swank, does Frank on his tank
He does look a swank does Frank without his hat on
He does look a swank does Frank.

He dashed through a laundry and came out bang in form
With a pair of ladies whats a name he kept the engine warm.
Ee! He did look a swank, did Frank on his tank
He did look a swank did Frank  He made a bloomer
He did look a swank did Frank.

He does look a swank does Frank without his hat on
He does look a swank does Frank.
See him dashing along with a clickerty clickerty clank

One night with a girl, for hours, inside he sat,
Its the first time that hes used his tank for anything like that
But he did look a swank with his girl in the tank
He did look a swank did Frank, he popped the question
He did look a swank did Frank

Oh he does look a swank does Frank on his tank
He does look a swank does Frank.
See him dashing along with a clickerty clickerty clank
Outside the Royal Palace once he caused such a scene
The King of course saluted him then whispered to the Queen
Ee! He does look a swank, does Frank on his tank
He does look a swank does Frank, give him a medal
He does look a swank does Frank.
