JUST WHAT I EXPECTED.
Written by Harry Vincent. Composed by Chas Clarendon.

Behold before you now a man who's always in a fix.
And I think of troubles I have got a score;
Like other folks I'm always very anxious for to know,
And I think I get inquisitive more And more.
There's a young man calls next door to me- what for I do not know,
And strange enough the thing occurred to me.
If I was just to have a peep through the keyhole of the door,
Most likely I should be able for to see-

Chorus.
Just what I expected, just what I expected,
I knew that they were fairly on the job;
If kissing they should be, why not do it openly,
But there you are, it's just what I expected.

I always try my utmost to keep from having rows.
And believe me, that I'm sure's the wisest plan;
The other day I saw a fellow thumping of his wife.
Then my blood rose like a true born Englishman.
I went straight up and told him what he'd done I thought a shame,
He answered me by making no reply;
But put himself in attitude, and straight out from the chest,
He landed me a punch clean in the eye.

Chorus.
Just what I expected, just what I expected,
It served me right for trying to interfere,
Instead of having a say, I should have gone the other way;
Well, there you are, it's just what I expected.

I thought I'd have a holiday, so to the seaside went,
Well just my luck I wasn't there so long.
Before a telegram it came, imagine my surprise
When I read, "Come home at once, there's something wrong."
I very soon packed up my things, the next train then I caught.
And landed home at I o'clock, a. m.;
Knocked at the door, the nurse came down congratulating me,
By saying, "Your the happiest of men."

Chorus.
Just what I expected, just what I expected,
I thought that I should dance and shout with glee,
When the nurse announced to me, "You are the dad of three;"
Well, there you are, it's just what I expected.
