Oh Dear Mother-1937
  Regal Zonophone MR2431 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

I called round last night, my best girl to see
Felt in such a plight when she sat on my knee.

Oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do,
Oh dear Mother we shared the same chair too.
She clung to me both hard and fast
And thought her chance had come at last,
But oh dear Mother, well I didn't know what to do.

Oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do
Oh dear Mother a wasp down her neck flew.
It settled somewhere I could tell
She told me where it was as well,
But oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do.

At a christening once I felt far from bold
When they gave to me the baby boy to hold
Oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do
Oh dear Mother I wore my best suit too

They sprinkled water on his hair, there was water water everywhere
But oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do.

Oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do
Oh dear Mother an old woman who lived in a shoe
I called to see her kids galore
She said she'd room for a couple more,
But oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do.

Oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do
Oh dear Mother when in the bed with 'flu
A young girl felt my pulse but Lor'
My temperature rose more and more
And oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do.

Oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do
Oh dear Mother whilst bathing in the blue
Some girls when I came out undressed
Took snapshots of my family crest
And oh dear Mother well I didn't know what to do.
Oh dear Mother, well I didn't know what to do.
