You're A Liaty-1937
  Regal Zonophone MR2430 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

Theyve just put me in prison for what I cannot tell
But I can see O.K. Ill be inside my little cell

When they said well look after you, theres a nice soft bed and pyjamas too
I sang youre a laity, youre a laity, laity eh.

I order luncheon in my cell, when I want the waiter I ring the bell
And I sing youre a laity, youre a laity, laity eh

Those Doh! Ray! Me! Fah! Soh! notes I dont know what they mean
I cant sing high or low notes, so I just sing in between.

The warders wife sees Im all right when they locked her in by mistake last night
I sang youre a laity, youre a laity, laity eh.

The hooter on my car wont hoot and as I have nothing else to toot
I sing youre a laity, youre a laity, laity eh.

I broadcast once at half past ten and they thought was Bing Crosby when
I sang youre a laity, youre a laity, laity eh.

Those Doh! Ray! Me! Fah! Soh! Notes I dont know what they mean
I cant sing high or low notes, so I just sing in between

A sailors wife who lives near me, when her old man goes away to sea
I sing youre a laity, youre a laity, laity eh.

When in our carnival Miss Green was all dressed up as the virgin queen
I sang youre a laity, youre a laity, laity eh.

I kissed a girl in a bargain store and when I got more than I bargained for
I sang youre a laity, youre a laity, laity eh.

Those Doh! Ray! Me! Fah! Soh! Notes I dont know what they mean
I cant sing high or low notes, so I just sing in between

Now at a wedding yesterday, when they said, "will you give the bride away?"
I sang youre a laity, youre a laity, laity eh.
