I'm Making Headway Now-1939
  Regal Zonophone MR3161 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

Hello old pal Im glad weve met Ive grown quite fond of you.
Youre quiet as a lamb but dont forget well show them what to do.

One another well stand by, to prove my words I mean to try
Youve got a kick and so have I, Im making headway now.
Of wheat and chaff weve ample stores, I know Ill never starve because
When Ive eaten mine Ill start on yours, Im making headway now.
Ive got my ambition, Ill be the talk of the town.
Ill hold my position, you cant keep a growing lad down.

I joined a gym for exercise, the lady instructor put me wise
She made my spare parts twice the size, Im making headway now.
Ive got a job and I mean to score, for me theres something good in store
I wont clean windows anymore, Im making headway now.
I take a horsebox to the course, that takes quite a lot of force
I must be strong to box a horse, Im making headway now
Ive got my ambition, Ill be the talk of the town.
Ill hold my position, you cant keep a growing lad down.

Once I phoned the railway folk, "give me the goods" a lady spoke
She said, "Im the goods" I said "Thats oke" Im making headway now
I mean to join the ARP the fire brigade and the CID
I might even join the BBC Im making headway now
A heavyweight I had to fight I said, "In my left theres dynamite
And a couple of horseshoes in my right" Im making headway now
Ive got my ambition, Ill be the talk of the town.
Ill hold my position, you cant keep a growing lad down.
Said the girl "If your wife I should be of children Id like two or three"
I said "You can leave all that to me" Im making headway now
