DADA! DADA! (Arthur LeClerq) As recorded by: Elsie Carlisle, Acc. by Studio Band, Possibly Dir. Jay Wilbur Recorded 1st October 1930 Charlie in the parlour, Kate upon his knee Her dad was in the next room dozing peacefully Kate was shy and bashful and acted like a dunce For she’s not seen fifty-four, not even once She stammered and she stuttered, she was scared no doubt And every now and then you’d hear her shout Dada, Dada, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, Come and see what Charlie’s da-da-da-doing Dada, Dada, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, I’m sure there’s trouble br-br-br-brewing He says I am an angel and a heavenly little thing If angels feel like I do, oh death where is thy sting Dada, Dada, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, Come and see what Charlie’s da-da-da-doing Father in the next room smiled and winked his eye He thought of him and mother in the days gone by They had no cosy parlour or pictures in the dark No, they had to sit and shiver in the park It made him think of what had happened years ago When all at once his daughter shouted “oh, oh” Oh, Dada, Dada, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, Come and see what Charlie’s da-da-da-doing Dada, Dada, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, I’m sure there’s trouble br-br-br-brewing He’s got his arm around my waist, I’m sitting on his knee And though I’ve told him not to do it, he keeps on kissing me Oh, Dada, Dada, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, Come and see what Charlie’s da-da-da-doing (Short musical break) Oh, he’s locked the door, turned out the lights And I feel such a thrill He says that he would and he could and he should And I really think he will Oh, Dada, Dada, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, Come and see what Charlie’s da-da-da-doing.
