It's No Use Looking At Me-1934
  Decca F5813 Gifford/Cliffe/Cottrell

Last Sunday I strolled into church the first time for years
A christening they had, a fine baby lad
The parson said, "Now whos the pa of this bouncing boy"
He looked at me, I grabbed my hat and said, "I dont do things like that"

Its no use looking at me, no use looking at me
He said I really thought a likeness I could see
I blushed red all around my ears and said "My word what strange ideas"
Why Ive been to sea for the last three years
So its no use looking at me.
Its no use looking at me

In the courts a murder case I heard being tried
"The murderer" said they "is at large today"
But no doubt they'll trace him by the scar on his face
The judge then glared all round the dock
He caught my eye, I said "Old cock"

Its no use looking at me, no use looking at me
He said, "I thought a scar on your face I could see"
I said, "Youre rather out of place
Ive got a scar but in my case
Its a darned long way off from my face
So its on use looking at me. No it s looking at me."

At acting once I tried my hand they said Id be good
Arrangements were made and Hamlet I played
I got rather muddled when I dressed for the part
The audience were full of grins. I shouted out "Odds Bodderkins"

Its no use looking at me, no use looking at me
I was feeling a draught around my anatomy
I must have looked the sight of sights
I shouted "Ee turn out the lights"
Cause Ive only got one leg in my tights
So its no use looking at me.
No, no its no use looking at me.
