The Fiddler Kept On Fiddling-1935
  Decca F5669 Gifford/Cliffe
Mr. Fiddler Joe took his fiddle and bow most everywhere he went.
Got married one day in a hotel so gay, a lovely evening spent. 
And the Fiddler kept on fiddlin', fiddling all the time.
To bed his bride had gone but he still kept fiddlin' on. 
Four hours he played up the stairs then he strayed and he heard the midnight chime, 
started kissing' his bride then he found in the gloom 
with a frowsy old maid he was in the wrong room. 
But the Fiddler kept on fiddlin', fiddlin' all the time.

On a Charabanc ride he sat by the side of the driver, 'Pon my soul. 
But alas by and by poked the bow in his eye and the driver lost control. 
But the Fiddler kept on fiddlin', fiddlin' all the time,
They went racin' down the hill at the bottom had a spill.
In a hospital bed there a nurse to him said very quiet you must recline,
or in heaven a harp you will play mighty sharp
he jumped up and he shouted 'To Hell with the harp!"
And the Fiddler kept on fiddlin', fiddlin' all the time.

In a theatre band he was getting' on grand 'til a fire occurred one night. 
Though it caused such a scare he still sat in his chair with his whiskers all alight,
And the Fiddler kept on fiddlin', fiddlin' all the time.
His pants were burnt right through, 
and he singed his E string too.
So brave he behaved, a panic he saved in that Christmas Pantomime.
The Principal boy who had had too much gin slipped and fell with her legs across his violin.
But the Fiddler kept on fiddlin', fiddlin' all the time.
