GINGER YOU'RE BARMY (Fred Murray 1910) recorded by - Harry Champion 1910 Charles Denton 1910 as recorded by Harry Champion August 4th 1910 Ginger, you're barmy! I’m always in the fashion, I’m a noted chap for that, So lately I’ve been walkin' about the streets without a hat. To do without a cady, why, it saves me 'alf a quid, I’m like a bloomin’ saucepan on the fire without a lid! I go, you know, strolling round the town, Waves me little cane about. Girls all say, "Look, Ginger’s on the mash!", Dig me in the ribs and shout: "Don’t walk about without yer cady on, Ginger, you're barmy! Get your 'air cut,” they all begin to cry, "With nothin' on your napper, oh you are a pie! Pie must 'ave a little bit o' crust, Why don’t you wear a cady? If you want to be a don, You want a bit o' something on To take off to a lady!" Once I went into the zoo with such a smiling face, But oh, there was a hellabaloo when I got in the place! The keepers started chasin' me, then I got in a rage, They put a chain around me neck and they bunged me in a cage! I cried, "I’m not a monkey, on me word!”, I had to buy them all some beer. When they let me out they told me this, "If you want to keep away from here": "Don’t walk about without yer cady on, Ginger, you're barmy! Get your 'air cut,” they all begin to cry, "With nothing on your napper, oh you are a pie! Pie must 'ave a little bit o' crust, Why don’t you wear a cady? If you want to be a don, You want a bit of something on To take off to a lady!" The missus took me in a pub, the governor, Mister 'Ogg, He stroked me ears, he give me a cake, he took me for a dog! A policeman stopped the traffic, shouted out with all his might, "Look out, here comes the North Pole with the top part all alight!" My wife said that me "Napper’s like a sieve, It’s full of little holes, I’ll bet! When it rains it will let the water in, And then your feet will both get wet!" "Don’t walk about without yer cady on, Ginger, you're barmy! Get your 'air cut,” they all begin to cry, "With nothing on your napper, oh you are a pie! Pie must 'ave a little bit o' crust, Why don’t you wear a cady? If you want to be a don, You want a bit o' something on To take off to a lady!" "Don’t walk about without yer cady on, Ginger, you're barmy! Get your 'air cut,” they all begin to cry, "With nothing on your napper, oh you are a pie! Pie must 'ave a little bit o' crust, Why don’t you wear a cady? If you want to be a don, You want a bit o' something on, Ginger, you're barmy! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2017)
