Got To Get Your Photo In The Press-1942
  Regal Zonophone MR3746 Latta

Each evening in the paper a picture you will see
Of somebody or other who is famous as can be.
We all have our ambitions, to break into the news
So now Im going to give you my views
If you want to get your photo in the press
You must be different some kind of way
Individuality plus personality, is what you need today.

I met a girl the other night, her name was Martha Hudd
She'd lost her teeth, she wore a wig, one leg was made of wood.
She said there's not much of me dear, but what there is is good
So they should have put her photo in the press.
If you want to get your photo in the press
You must be different some kind of way
Individuality plus personality, is what you need today.

Twas Christmas in the workhouse and the pudding got the bird
What shall I do, the master cried, then one chap, so I heard,
Just stood upon the table and he never said a word
But they're going to put his photo in the press.
If you want to get your photo in the press
You must be different some kind of way
Individuality plus personality, is what you need today.

The stork paid us a visit, so I called in Doctor Lumm,
He told me that my wife had twins, the room began to hum.
Then he said I'll slip upstairs again in case there's more to come
Ee, I nearly got my photo in the press.
If you want to get your photo in the press
You must be different some kind of way
Individuality plus personality, is what you need today.

Lately I've become well known, I'm sure you'll understand.
It happened down at Blackpool with some ladies on the sand.
They found me with my little ukulele in my hand
And theyre going to put my photo in the press.
