The Lancashire Hot-Pot Swingers-1939
  Regal Zonophone MR3147 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

There's a band of syncopators and they're all first raters
Every night excitement is intense.
When the leader waves his baton you want to keep your hat on
Its like a hurricane when they commence .

It's a real hot rhythm band, it's the finest in the land
The Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.
Of instruments they've quite a few, a trombone, hambone, wishbone, too.
The Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.

They swing high and low for all they are worth,
They ought to take another swing and swing off the earth.

At dance halls they make such a din, the floor gives way and the roof falls in
On the Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.
The drummer bangs his drum with pride you'd think his missus was inside
With the Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.

My music's upside down, one said, so he played it standing on his head
With the Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.
They swing high and low for all they are worth,
They ought to take another swing and swing off the earth.

You ought to hear 'em playing Faust, they play it better when they're soused.
The Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.
The cornet player no longer blows so he plays his cornet through his nose
With the Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.

Their crooner we bought him a wreath because he swallowed his false teeth
With the Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.
They swing high and low for all they are worth,
They ought to take another swing and swing off the earth.

They broadcast once but, holy snakes, we'd three typhoons and four earthquakes
Through the Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.
Their conductor makes a fuss, he swanks 'cause he conducts a bus
And the Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.

One chap's got no roof to his mouth, you ought to hear him croon down south
With the Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.
They swing high and low for all they are worth,
They ought to take another swing and swing off the earth.

They blast and blow and blow and blast, you blast each blast folks that's the last
Of the Lancashire Hot Pot Swingers.
