BICEPS, MUSCLE AND BRAWN (Harry Gifford / Fred Cliffe / George Formby) as recorded by George Formby July 11th 1937 Why am I forgotten by the girl I love? Because me clothes hang on me like a sack! I know I'm not athletic And look a bit pathetic, And wear most of me chest upon me back! The nation's got an A1 plan And I might turn into a man, If I'd biceps, muscle and brawn! I'd grow spinach on me chest, Where the birds could build the nest, If I'd biceps, muscle and brawn! In competitions, exhibitions, catch as catch catch, I would win some lovely cups and saucers to match! The girls would all love my physique, I'd let them see it twice a week, If I'd biceps, muscle and brawn! My ribs at knock knock wouldn't play Or rattle on a windy day, If I'd biceps, muscle and brawn! Hercules was far from slim But I could show them more than him, If I'd biceps, muscles and brawn! In competitions, exhibitions, catch as catch catch, I would win some lovely cups and saucers to match! The ladies white hope I would be, They'd hope to see much more of me, If I'd biceps, muscle and brawn! I'd look swell when out of doors In my fifty bob plus-fours, If I'd biceps, muscle and brawn! My photo in the press you'd see To show what bile beans did for me, If I'd biceps, muscle and brawn! In competitions, exhibitions, catch as catch catch, I would win some lovely cups and saucers to match! I'd have strength to carry on And something good to sit upon, If I'd biceps, muscle and brawn!
