FALL IN AND FOLLOW ME (Music: Bennett Scott / Lyrics: A.J. Mills) Albert Whelan - 1910 Harry Fay - 1910 Jack Charman - 1910 Stanley Kirkby - 1911 Also recorded by: Billy Whiteley; Harry Davidson Orch.; Chas & Dave; Duffy Ravenscroft. Mister Gibson, once a military man Uses military language when he can; Once he left his quiet suburban nest, With six pals he went up west. Said the others, "Now what shall we do? As we want some fun, we'll leave it all to you". Then Gibson swelled with military pride, Twirling his moustache he cried; "Fall in and follow me! Fall in and follow me! Come along and never mind the weather, All together, stand on me, boys; I know the way to go, I'll take you for a spree; You do as I do and you'll do right, Fall in, and follow me!" Off they went to see a ballet gay that night, And the lovely dancing girls gave them delight; Then behind the scenes they thought they'd go, Said, "Those girls we'd like to know". Gibson quickly led the way, you're sure, Through a passage dark until they reached a door; And then he stopped and whispered low, "I guess This is where the fairies dress"; "Fall in and follow me! Fall in and follow me! Come along and never mind the weather, All together, stand on me, boys; I know the way to go, I'll take you for a spree; You do as I do and you'll do right, Fall in, and follow me!" Something after twelve they started home again, Had to walk, they'd lost the last suburban train; By the old canal they tramped along, Singing out the latest song. Then they saw their wives, oh! what a scream! Walking towards them by the flowing stream; Then Gibson slipped and fell into the tide, Splashed about and loudly cried: "Fall in and follow me! Fall in and follow me! Come along and never mind the weather, All together, stand on me, boys; I know the way to go, I'll take you for a spree; You do as I do and you'll do right, Fall in, and follow me!"
