The Left Hand Side Of Egypt-1941
  Regal Zonophone MR3521Bennett/Gay

Have you ever seen the beauties of the Nile?
If you havent you would find it worth your while
But you have to take a little bit of care.
Let me tell you what occurred when I was there.

I saw a beauty of the Nile, throwing stones at a crocodile
On the left hand side of Egypt going in
She smiled at me she did, took me into a pyramid.
On the left hand side of Egypt going in

All sorts of things I saw, things Id never, never seen before
Lucky there was nobody about

I took that beauty of the Nile, threw her in to a crocodile
On the left hand side of Egypt coming out
I saw a beauty of the Nile, throwing stones at a crocodile
On the left hand side of Egypt going in

That girl was all tattooed, pictures there on her "dont be rude"
On the left hand side of Egypt going in
Tattooed upon her hips, she'd got beautiful battleships
Lucky there was nobody about

I'd tell you so much more but you know, careless talk would assist the foe
On the left hand side of Egypt coming out
I saw a beauty of the Nile, throwing stones at a crocodile
On the left hand side of Egypt going in

That night was dark but calm, we sat under a leafy palm
On the left hand side of Egypt going in
One kiss I had to grin, she'd got bristles on her chin
Lucky there was nobody about

She spoke to me in real broad Scotch, 'twas a kiltie from the old Black Watch
On the left hand side of Egypt coming out

I saw a beauty of the Nile, throwing stones at a crocodile
On the left hand side of Egypt coming in
Like the Sheik of Araby I took her into a tent with me
On the left hand side of Egypt going in

She stole my gold watchcase, the works I keep in a secret place
Lucky there was nothing else about
She stole the empty case alright, but I gave her the works on the following night
On the left hand side of Egypt coming out.
