CAN YOU SAY BREAD AND BUTTER WITHOUT MOVING YOUR LIPS (T. Waite) Tommy Handley - 1927 I've been trying for quite a while to do one certain thing If I could only do it, I'd be proud as any king I'm trying ev'ry night at home, I try each day at biz I'd like you all to try it, so I'll tell you what it is Can you say bread and butter without moving your lips Can you say boiled beef without moving your lips Can you say bed and breakfast, biscuits, and bunions I said bunions, bunions, not onions You can't say hips and you can't say pips You can't say rips and you can't say dips You might say fish, but you can't say chips And you can't say bread and butter without moving your lips SPOKEN: Ha-ha, trés ludicrous, this song. Now I've told you what it is, I hope you persevere You must not move your lips at all, but you may move one ear You'll find it very hard because you've tongue you've got to twist But once you've done it, then you'll be a real ventriloquist SPOKEN: Now, listen folks, let's try and sing the chorus without moving our lips and see what it sounds like. Now, come on, get your ears well back, keep your lips still, don't blow your tonsils out, and let it go! Can you say gread and gutter without moving your lips Can you say goiled geef without moving your lips Can you say ged and greakfast, giscuits, and gunions I said gunions, gunions, not onions You can't say hix and you can't say pix You can't say rix and you can't say dix You might say fish, but you can't say chix And you can't say bread and butter without moving your lips (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2010)
