HE'S DEAD, BUT HE WON'T LIE DOWN Gracie Fields (with Ray Noble's Orch) - 1932 My Sister's young man is a hundred and three Yes, a hundred and three is he And he's real cold storage meat From his head right to his feet He's dead, but he won't lie down Now, she's his Juliet and he's her Romeo Though his real name is Septimus Brown From his soul romance has fled Still she likes his old bald head He's dead, but he won't lie down He won't lie down He's dead, but he won't lie down At a movie show once, full of passion and love He said, "Be Mrs. Septimus Brown", huh-huh And although he'd got the cramps He said, "Vamp me, Darling, vamp", hee-hee-hee-hee He's dead, but he won't lie down Now, Septimus Brown has a large family It's the biggest one for miles around He's had children by the score But he thinks he'd like some more He's dead, but he won't lie down He won't lie down He's dead, but he won't lie down Now, late last night in the old cemet'ry With all the pretty tombstones 'round Sister said, "Oh, do behave, a-hah-hah" Then they both fell in a grave He's dead, but he won't lie down He won't lie down He's dead, but he won't lie down I think he's lying down now I think they're both lying down, huh-huh (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2006)
