Hold Your Hats On-1942
  Regal Zonophone MR3654 Miller/Addinsell

It's time that we were saying cheerio.
We hate to leave you but we've got to go
But the sooner we hit the track, then the sooner we'll come back
And it wont be long before we say hello.

Hold your hats on toodle-oodle-oo.
Hold your hats on, we will see it through
Where the ocean's deeper and the beer is cheaper
Hold your hats on, we've a job to do.

So we roam o'er the foam, but we'll soon come sailing home
While the tide is turning keep the home fires burning
Hold your hats on toodle-oodle-oo, we've a job to do
We'll be seeing you, toodle-oodle-oo.

Hold your hats on toodle-oodle-oo
Hold your hats on, girls I'm telling you
When the wind blows over, your white cliffs of Dover
Hold your hats on till the storm is through.
In a squall you may fall, right upon your "bless 'em all"

Though the bad boy tarters may see your pink blushes
Hold your hats on like the sailors do,
If they get a view, just a thing or two, toodle-oodle--oo.
Hold your hats on toodle-oodle-oo
Hold your hats on, in the army too

If the sergeant's mustard don't call him a custard
Hold your hats on or the clink for you
When you plod (Yes sir) when you plod, don't call him a silly fool
For that sergeant snarling may be someone's darling
Hold your hats on when he's drilling you, tell him what to do
With his bayonet too, toodle-oodle-oo.
