EASY GOING CHAP (Harry Gifford / Fred Cliffe / George Formby) as recorded by George Formby March 21st 1937 Once I thought I would go In for flyin', and so A chap took me up in his plane. Thought some stunts he would try, Loop the loop in the sky, We turned over and over again! It's a good job I'm an easy goin' chap, Take things as they come. He quite thought the stunts were cute, But my nerves they didn't suit, I cried, "I'm jumpin' out!", And grabbed hold of the parachute. Then he shouted, "That won't open, it's no good!", I said, "Well I don't care a rap, If it's broken and not sound, I'll get quickly to the ground, It's a good job I'm an easy goin' chap! It occurred once to me That a nudist I'd be, So the camp one day I took by storm! As I strolled about there, All the girls, I declare, Passed remarks about my manly form. It's a good job I'm an easy goin' chap, Take things as they come. They said, "He's so thin and tall, Through a crack he'd almost crawl! If you're lookin' at him sideways, Then you can't see him at all! He's so skinny, Like a skeleton he looks, And of fat he hasn't a scrap!" I said, "Though I've not a lot, Still I'm proud of what I've got, It's a good job I'm an easy goin' chap!" One night I rang the bell At a country hotel, And someone came down in the gloom. "We're all full up", they said, "But we'll fix up a bed If you're willing to share baby's room". It's a good job I'm an easy goin' chap, Take things as they come. I said, "Fix me anywhere, Baby's room I'll gladly share!" As soon as I commenced undressing, I got such a scare! In the doorway, Such a lovely girl appeared, I was just puttin' on my nightcap. "Goodness, who are you?" I cried, I'm the baby!", she replied. It's a good job I'm an easy goin' chap! [ends] (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2017)
