Hi-Tiddley Hi-Ti Island-1937
  Regal Zonophone MR2490 Stanley/Alleyn

I've just come back from a cannibal isle called Hi-tiddly-hi-ti-ti;
Where a dusky queen said "Hello Bean!" and gave me the goo-goo eye.
Her face was like an empty space, and my poor heart went 'bing
I tried to go but she shouted, "Whoa!" And made me her"Hi-ti" King

In Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Island, everybody wears a smile;
Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Island, everybody lives in style
The girls out there are full of sport, and were their frocks a trifle short,
Some are simply 'wrapped in thought'
In Hi-Tiddly-Hi-Ti Isle.

Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Island, everybody wears a smile;
Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Island, everybody lives in style
Young couples go to bathe, you'll find,
And leave their bathing suits behind,
It's a darned good job that love is blind
In Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Isle

Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Island, everybody wears a smile;
Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Island, everybody lives in style
The life's so fast and swift and gay,
You live two weeks then fade away,
I'm taking the wife for a fortnights stay
In Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Isle.

Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Island, everybody wears a smile;
Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Island, everybody lives in style.
Instead of grass the cows chew pins,
And when their milking time begins,
The milk comes out in shilling tins,
On Hi-tiddly-hi-ti Isle
