The Barmaid At The Rose And Crown-1941
  Regal Zonophone MR3567 Formby

In town there is a little pub which gives much satisfaction
The men dont go there for the beer: the barmaid's the attraction.
Her age is, oh well, quite all that ,and more on Monday morning.
She knows her onions. Take my word, she's heard the gypsy's warning

She lays on powder as thick as crust, Ive smacked her cheek and what a fuss
I couldn't see her face for dust, the Barmaid At The Rose And Crown.
She wears nice undies full of thrills, all silken lace and saucy frills,
I know because I've seen the bills and paid em at the Rose And Crown

There is a tavern in the town, in the town
And in that tavern there's a bust forty inches round

She's got a figure fine and fair , theres lots of it and some to spare
It goes in here and comes out there, the Barmaid At The Rose And Crown.
She likes to think that you are hers and if you prove a quitter
She'll cry into your class of mild .and turn it into bitter

She'll have a little drink with you and make you nice and cosy
And if you never count your change; youll make a hit with rosie
She always looks so very posh, so many rings she wears, by gosh,
Her hands she never has to wash, the Barmaid At The Rose And Crown.

The pendant round her neck is great, its larger than a dinner plate,
She's got round shoulders with the weight,
The Barmaid At The Rose And Crown

There is a tavern in the town, in the town
And in that tavern there's a lass in a glittering gown

With jewellery she takes the bun, her ear-rings weigh quite half a ton
She lets me swing on them for fun, the Barmaid At The Rose And Crown
Now if you want her to seize and round her waist you give a squeeze,
You'll hear her shout, "not this side please,"
The Barmaid At The Rose And Crown

If she ever falls for you, a kiss will last an hour or two,
She's got her lipstick mixed with glue, the Barmaid At The Rose And Crown.

There is a tavern in the town, in the town,
And in that tavern there are lips that have won renown.

But if you take her for a mug, and ever try to sneak a hug,
She'll kick you in the "bottle and jug,"
The Barmaid At The Rose And Crown.
