I'm The Husband Of the Wife Of Mr Wu-1939
  Regal Zonophone MR3425 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

Famous men they come and go, where they go to I dont know
All I know it's clear, I'm still here.

I'm the husband of the wife of Mr. Wu
She feeds me up with nice chop-suey too
Of charms she has a lot, don't know exactly what
It's just a little something that the others haven't got.

Our honeymoon in china was a do, we visited pagodas, quite a few.
Said a geisha, "you look sporty", but I said "I daren't be naughty,
I'm the husband of the wife of Mr. Wu."

I'm the husband of the wife of Mr. Wu
She feeds me up with nice chop-suey too
Of charms she has a lot, don't know exactly what
It's just a little something that the others haven't got.

Said a geisha serving tea, "me likey you".
A tasty dish she brought and made love too,
Then I said, "you'd better stop quick, you can't meddle with my chopstick
I'm the husband of the wife of Mr. Wu."

I'm the husband of the wife of Mr. Wu
She feeds me up with nice chop-suey too
Of charms she has a lot, don't know exactly what
It's just a little something that the others haven't got.

In the market square of things I bought a few
They tried to sell me silk pyjamas too.
I said, "though I might admire 'em,I don't think I shall require 'em,
I'm the husband of the wife of Mr. Wu."

I'm the husband of the wife of Mr. Wu
She feeds me up with nice chop-suey too
Of charms she has a lot, don't know exactly what
It's just a little something that the others haven't got.

Then a girl said, "I intend to marry you,
Of little chinks we'll soon have twenty two
I said, "that's a proposition, but I'm no Chinese magician
I'm the husband of the wife of Mr. Wu."
