FIVE AND TWENTY YEARS (Harry Gifford / Fred E Cliffe / George Formby) as recorded by George Formby October 29th 1936 Now there's always alterations, Though some are for our good. I'll bet there's lots of things We'd like to alter if we could! But what's the use of looking glum? There's still a lot more years to come! Says the old maid every evening, As beneath her bed she peers, "Once more darned unlucky, After five and twenty years!" Last night grandma kissed grandpa, Whispered love words in his ears. Said grandpa, "Blimey, nark it After five and twenty years!" Time brings changes; Though you're in your prime, Everybody changes with time! At the well one night, Rebecca Met a young man with ideas. That night she cracked her pitcher After five and twenty years! An actress tells her right age In the papers, it appears. She's been twenty seven now For five and twenty years! An old man joined the nudists And he said, "Last night, my dears, I haven't felt like I feel now For five and twenty years!" Time brings changes; Though you're in your prime, Everybody changes with time! Said Mrs Brown, the widow, "If someone volunteers, I'll take anythin' in trousers After five and twenty years!" Jones never took his wife out, Till the boiler burst, poor dears, Then they both went out together After five and twenty years! To King Solomon, one evening, Said his favourite wife in tears, "Must you still sleep with your father After five and twenty years!" Time brings changes; Though you're in your prime, Everybody changes with time! Our village birthrate's falling And no wonder we have fears, The squire's son has been away For five and twenty years!
