It Might Have Been A Great Deal Worse-1941
  Regal Zonophone MR3472 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

Now I've knocked about, my lucks been out but things don't worry me.
Though kicks I've had they're not so bad as what they seem to be.
I've been in jams and what is more, I boxed with one chap twelve stone four
He broke my ribs and smashed my jaw, but it might have been a great deal worse.

Brown went home and caught young Blair cuddling his wife in a chair.
Had it been last week he'd have caught me there, so it might have been a great deal worse

Everything happens for the best, take it from me.
Never turn back if things look black 'cause they're not as bad as they seem to be
While bathing, Miss Jones, plump and stout ripped her dress and gave a shout.
But the tide was late in going out, so it might have been a great deal worse.

In the park while going strong, my girl said, " Now you know that's wrong."
If a copper hadn't come along it might have been a great deal worse
Mary Sheefsby went astray, with a shepherd she went gay.
But she only lost her sheep that day, so it might have been a great deal worse.

Everything happens for the best, take it from me.
Never turn back if things look black 'cause they're not as bad as they seem to be.
I got shipwrecked with a girl named Lou, I said, "Cheer up things aren't so blue,
If I'd have got the mate instead of you, it might have been a great deal worse."

I motorcycled with Miss Blake, violent looks she began to make
But I kept my hand upon my brake or it might have been a great deal worse.
I'm not well built, my chest is weak, I haven't got a fine physique,
But I think I've got what most girls seek, so it might have been a great deal worse.

Everything happens for the best, take it from me.
Never turn back if things look black 'cause they're not as bad as they seem to be.
Some figures we watched in the sky, I shouted as I closed one eye,
It's a good job elephants don't fly, or it might have been a great deal worse.
