GIRL IN THE HANSOM CAB, THE (Jimmie Kennedy) As recorded by: Jack Harris & His Band V. Elsie Carlisle Recorded 25th October 1937 Flossie was queen of the chorus The hit of a great London show But while other girls went to supper with Earls Round in a Hanson she’d go Each night when the curtain came down She was the toast of the town She was so lovely, and she was so shy She had that “come chase me” look in her eye But when fellows chased her she’d break down and cry The girl in the Hansom cab Drive around awhile, Driver Don’t crawl along like a crab Woah, she was a picture and she was a pet She was a girl you could never forget But under her satin she wore flannelette The girl in the Hansom cab She was so tender and she was so sweet Why, all London town simply fell at her feet Ee, but she ordered tripe when she went out to eat The girl in the Hansom cab Drive around awhile, Driver Don’t crawl along like a crab Oh, she was a darling and she was a dear She wed a man with ten thousand a year Forgetting she’d married a ship’s engineer The girl in the Hansom cab (Musical Break) Oh, when they got married her husband said, “Aah, It’s very thrilling to marry a star” She said, “oh there’s bigger thrill coming, Papa” The girl in the Hansom cab Drive around awhile, Driver Don’t crawl along like a crab Woah, he planned a honeymoon yachting at sea “Now fancy the two of us yachting“, said she “There won’t be much yachting if it’s left to me” The girl in the Hansom cab Drive around awhile, Driver Don’t crawl along like a crab Woah, she was a darling and she was a dear The girl in the Hansom cab.
