DARE DEVIL DICK (Harry Gifford / Fred E Cliffe) as recorded by George Formby October 29th 1936 You've heard of Dick Turpin and bold Robin 'Ood, I'm known as one of the click. A bit of a gangster, a terror to all, The lads call me Dare Devil Dick. I'm fond of a fight, over fightin' I gloat, I'm always the first to hold anyone's coat! Dare Devil Dick, Up to every trick, Dare Devil Dick, that's me! Only last week, without sayin' a word, I travelled first class when me ticket was third. I'm a demon, I'm a devil may care, full of villainy; Full fare on me ticket they soon made me pay, But I got me own back the very next day. I bought two first class tickets and walked all the way, Dare Devil Dick, that's me! Dare Devil Dick, Up to every trick, Dare Devil Dick, that's me! With a girl on a raft I was wrecked on the seas, I was in a short shirt, she wore a chemise. "Hoist a signal!", soon she started to shout, "And save us from the sea!" I took off me shirt, "They won't see that!", she raved, So I grabbed her chemise, on the mast it soon waved. When she smiled I said, "Gee, I don't want to be saved!", Dare Devil Dick, that's me! Dare Devil Dick, Up to every trick, Dare Devil Dick, that's me! For a picnic I went with me sweetie one day, We romped in the fields and we sat in the hay. It was lovely till she cried in alarm, "There's a bumble bee! Oh be brave and find it!" I shouted out "Where?" She said, "Where I'm sittin', it's underneath there!" I got stung on the hand , ha-ha but I didn't care, Dare Devil Dick, that's me! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2017)
