FOLLOWING IN FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS (E.W. Rogers) Vesta Tilley - 1904 To follow in your father's footsteps Is a motto for each boy And following in father's footsteps Is a thing I much enjoy My mother caught me fair one evening Up the West End out on the spree She said, "Where are you going?" But I answered, "Don't ask me......." I'm following in father's footsteps I'm following the dear old dad He's just in front with a fine big girl So, I thought I'd have one as well I don't know where he's going But when he gets there, I'll be glad I'm following in father's footsteps Yes, I'm following the dear old dad Pa said that to the North of England He on business had to go To Charig Cross he went And where he booked, I booked first class also I found myself that night in Paris To the clergyman next door I answered when he said "What are you in this gay place for?" I'm following in father's footsteps I'm following the dear old dad He's travelling now for his firm, you see In fancy goods, it seems to me I don't know where he's going But when he gets there, I'll be glad I'm following in father's footsteps Yes, I'm following the dear old dad At Margate with Papa I toddled out To have a good old swim I didn't know the proper place to bathe So left it all to him I found meself amongst some ladies I laughed, and so did Pa Till Ma yelled, "Percy, fie for shame" Said I, "It's all right, Ma......." I'm following in father's footsteps I'm following the dear old dad He's gone out there with a fair Miss Just to show me how to hold girls up I'm going to hold her next time When he drops her, I'll be glad I'm following in father's footsteps Yes, I'm following the dear old dad To dinner up in town last night I went And Pa went there as well How many lemonades we had, my word I really couldn't tell At two a.m. he started off for home Like this, and so did I Folks said, "Mind where you're going" But I simply made reply I'm following in father's footsteps I'm following the dear old dad He's wobbling on in front, you see And 'pon my word, he's worse than me I don't know where he's going When he gets there, I'll be glad I'm following in father's footsteps Yes, I'm following the dear old dad (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2015)
