You Don't Need A License For That-1946
  Columbia FB3251 Formby/Cliffe

If youve a pub or a small hotel, you need a license for all you sell
You may think Im romancing, but they even tax you for singing and dancing.

You need a license whatever you do, one or two things theyve exempted its true,
Lumbago, the gout or a touch of the flu, you dont need a license for that.

Now Ive got a license for chickens to lay, one of them sat on a brick yesterday,
And then started clucking, as much as to say, he wont need a license for that.

Wed have a good time, a wines in the wood time, if it were duty free.
Wed cut the taxes, with our battle-axes, then roll out the barrel for me.

Dairies must license you bet on your life,
If youve a cow then theres trouble and strife
As Farmer Dean said when he looked at his wife,
"By gum Ill not need a license for that!"

You need a license for shooting down game,
But Id rather flirt with a beautiful dame,
Cause I get the sport with the birds just the same
And I dont need a license for that

We sit in the pictures, as warm as a glove, in the back row of the circle above,
Two bobs worth of dark and a basin of love and I dont need a license for that.

Wed have a good time, a wines in the wood time, if it were duty free.
Wed cut the taxes, with our battle-axes, then roll out the barrel for me.

Fishing at Richmond is licensed by law,
A chap to his girl said, "Now you hold your jaw".
You know exactly what Im fishing for, and I dont need a license for that.
No sir, I dont need a license for that.
