GERTIE, THE GIRL WITH THE GONG (Ray Sonin / Ronnie Munro) HOME JAMES AND DON'T SPARE THE HORSES (Writer Unknown) NO! NO! A THOUSAND TIMES NO! ((Al Sherman / Al Lewis / Abner Silver) Elsie Carlisle (with Ambrose & His Orch.) - 1935 I'm Gertie, the girl with the gong And I watch your car speed along If you do more than thirty, then Gertie gets shirty And tinkles a song on the gong Oh, beware when you're driving along For the Law says that you're in the wrong If I'm dressed as a Cop and I call you to stop Oh, I'm Gertie, the girl with the gong (Musical Break) (Home James and don't spare the horses) This night has been ruined for me (Home James and don't spare the horses) Oh, I'm ruined as ruined can be This was in the Gay Nineties One night, an ace swell affair She was dressed in her best Sunday bustle And wore a rat in her hair Her lover was not tall or handsome But he was a terrible flirt He spent the entire evening Making up to every skirt Angrily she reproached him He heeded not at all So she in her best Sunday bustle Went flouncing out of the hall She swept down the steps so majestic To her footman standing below And in accent loud and clear She told him where to go Oh, home James and don't spare the horses Drive right through the main part of town Oh, home James and don't spare the horses He'll stand up 'cause he can't sit down (Hah-hah-hah-hah, hah-a-hah-a-hah-a-hah-hah-hah) No! No! A thousand times no! You cannot buy my caress No! No! A thousand times no! I'd rather die than say yes I am a child of the valley An innocent maiden you see He was a desperate Desmond Who owned all the town property He would pursue me through hills and through dells But I was just wise to his game Each time he would threaten, "You'll wed me or else" These were the words I'd exclaim No! No! A thousand times no! You cannot buy my caress No! No! A thousand times no! I'd rather die than say yes Altogether, Boys No! No! A thousand times no! You cannot buy my caress No! No! A thousand times no! I'd rather die than say yes (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2006)
