Who Are You A-Shovin Of-1941
  Regal Zonophone MR3521 Raymond/Gay

You cannot be too careful in this world of ours today
A little hasty action and there's often lots to pay
But I've reached one conclusion so I'll tell you right away
If anyone gets tough with you, well this is what you say - oi

Who are you a shoving of, who do you think you be
Who are you a shoving of, keep your hands off me.
I can't see why you pick on me.
Who are you a shoving of, kindly let me be.

A chap worked in a quarry with a load of dynamite
He lit his pipe and dropped the match and set the stuff alight.
His workmates couldn't find him when the smoke had cleared away
But somewhere up above the clouds the angels heard him say

Who are you a shoving of, who do you think you be
Who are you a shoving of, keep your hands off me.
I can't see why you pick on me.
Who are you a shoving of, kindly let me be.

There was a handsome soldier boy who sat down in the park
Beside a pretty nursemaid who looked ready for a lark.
We'll never know what happened or what really occurred,
But this we know for certain is what everybody heard - ey!

Who are you a shoving of, who do you think you be
Who are you a shoving of, keep your hands off me.
I can't see why you pick on me.
Who are you a shoving of, kindly let me be.

I know a blooming soldier who got the blooming hump,
They put him in the paratroops and said he'd have to jump.
He said it seems a silly way to take a trip to town.
They pushed him out and heard him shout as he went floating down - oi!

Who are you a shoving of, who do you think you be
Who are you a shoving of, keep your hands off me.
I can't see why you pick on me.
Who are you a shoving of, kindly let me be.

A nasty little U boat came a snooping round the fleet
A couple of destroyers thought he ought to have a treat.
They dropped a little egg or two, there was a mighty plop.
Then Cap-it-an Von Stinkle-bum came gurgling to the top.

Who are you a shoving of, who do you think you be
Who are you a shoving of, keep your hands off me.
I can't see why you pick on me.
Who are you a shoving of, kindly let me be.
