Keep Your Seats Please-1936
  Regal Zonophone MR2199 Formby/Gifford/Cliffe

There's a catchword getting all the craze, it's the latest phrase,
Everybody says "hold tight keep your sets please"
No one knows just why it first broke out, what it's all about
Why do people shout "hold tight keep your seats please"

What a sensation, talk of the nation, how it travels round.
Even the Hindoos, Kaffirs and Zulus, they've all got it,
Hear them holla it.

In the talkies holding hands perhaps, all you girls and chaps,
On each others laps
Hold tight keep your seats please.
If you're in a public bar one day and hear a Scotchman say,
For the drinks Ill pay, hold tight keep your seats please.

If a lady speaker starts to bawl, I can prove to all why you women fall.
Hold tight keep your seats please.
What a sensation, talk of the nation, how it travels round.
Even the Hindoos, Kaffirs and Zulus, they've all got it, hear them holla it.

Your old flame upon her wedding day hears the parson say
"Wholl give her away" but hold tight keep your seats please.
On the donkeys by the gay seaside should the saddle slide
Upside down you'll ride but hold tight and keep your seats please.

If your landlady who's so precise says the chicken's nice
Let me help you twice. Hold tight keep your seats please.
What a sensation, talk of the nation, how it travels round.
Even the Hindoos, Kaffirs and Zulus, they've all got it, hear them holla it.

On the swing boats when you ladies go, mind the crowds below,
Take care what you show. Hold tight keep your seats please.
