The Daring Young Man-1945
  Regal Zonophone MR3760 Formby/Cliffe
(HE WAS SUCH A DARING YOUNG MAN)

Ive got a story, a story thats true,
Im telling you right now.
The tale of a gymnast upon a trapeze
With muscular arms, legs and beautiful knees.

Without a fault hed somersault, turn over complete,
He was such a daring young man.
You couldnt place which was his face or which was his seat,
He was such a daring young man.

Then his fellow partner he would catch in mid-air,
Hed pretend to miss him but hed grab him somewhere
But just exactly where he grabbed him, he didnt care,
Cause he was such a daring young man.

The lights went low as too and fro he gracefully slipped,
He was such a daring young man.
To change his clothes from head to toes, in darkness he stripped,
He was such a daring young man.

He took off his coat and trousers during the fight,
Then when hed finished changing up went the lights,
But by mistake hed only got one leg in his tights,
Cause he was such a daring young man.

He was such a daring young man

A lady fair shot through the air towards his trapeze,
Now he was such a daring young man.
He caught her wrist then gave a twist, pulled her on his knees,
He was such a daring young man.

He caught that flying lady with such judgement and tacked,
But shed a jealous husband and the theatre in fact,
Was not the only place that shed been caught in the act,
Ee but he was such a daring young man.
