There's Nothing Proud About Me-1934
Decca F5232 Gifford/Cliffe
Im not stuck up or proud, Im just one of the crowd,
A good turn Ill do when I can.
A local doctor one night needed something put right,
And he wanted a handy man.
Theres nothing proud about me, I dashed round as quick as can be
A girl on the couch said "Im fearing the worst,
Had I better take just a few things off first
I think I need overhauling", I answered, "So I see,
But first of all the truth I must tell,
Ive called to look at your front street doorbell.
But I dont mind if I overhaul you as well,
Theres nothing proud about me."
Out in Persia one day, thats a long way away,
I found that I hadnt a cent.
For a bed then I thought, well the Sultans a sport
To his palace at once I went.
Theres nothing proud about me, Im fond of good company.
The harem was full up with wives of all kind
I said, "Im sure room for me they can find.
The Sultan need not be jealous, a good lad I will be.
One hundred wives hes got so its said
There must be some place to lay down my head.
I dont mind turning in at the foot of the bed.
Theres nothing proud about me.
