When We Feather Our Nest-1937
  Regal Zonophone MR2430 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

Ive been lonely a long long time, well get together soon
In our little nest Ill deserve a rest, after the honeymoon.
Though I feel a little bit shy, Ill be all right by and by.

I have never been wed before, Im going to like it I feel quite sure
Gee, theres something for us in store. When we feather our nest
Well live under a magic spell, itll be like heaven but sad to tell
If your mother comes round itll be like **** when we feather our nest

We will make our home just like a one price happiness store
There will be just you and me and maybe two or three more

Youll have to make my wages do, Im only earning one pound two
Thats a pound for me and two bob for you when we feather our nest
The bed is not long enough but still, manage somehow I know we will
Ill sleep with my feet on the window sill, when we feather our nest.

Weve got a garage but dont forget, we cant afford a car just yet.
We must save up for a sewing machine, when we feather our nest.

We will make our home just like a one price happiness store
There will be just you and me and maybe three or four more

Well keep our garden up to scratch, slugs and snails Ill let you catch
But dont muck about with the cabbage patch, when we feather our nest
The parlours small, seven feet by four, well take our piano to bits Im sure
And push all the parts underneath the floor, when we feather our nest.

A lovely bathroom all brand new, youll splash me, yes and Ill splash you
And well see such a lot of each other too, when we feather our nest.

We will make our home just like a one price happiness store
There will be just you and me and maybe two or three more.

Around the house therell be jobs galore, you'll bet Ill do my share and more
And youll soon find out what a husbands for, when we feather our nest.
