HE'S IN THE INFIRMARY NOW (J. P. Long) Radio Syncopaters, Dir. Jay Wilbur V. Leslie Holmes Recorded 15th July 1932 I'll sing a song of tragedy To make your blood freeze horribly A friend of mine whose name was Paul Once sang this song in the Albert Hall And he's in the infirmary now Oh, he's in the infirmary now They threw him lots of flowers in pots So he's in the infirmary now Up on a fourteenth storey floor A man walked through an open door He knew he had two steps to take But walked down the lift shaft by mistake And he's in the infirmary now Oh, he's in the infirmary now One step, said he, is enough for me So he's in the infirmary now Jack was a sailor staunch and true Who did what all good sailors do He went ashore at the Dardanelles And tried to vamp the harem girls And he's in the infirmary now Oh, he's in the infirmary now Though he's in port his leave's cut short And he's in the infirmary now Brown was a landlord good as gold Who believed all the tales his tenants told The husband of young Mrs Shears Once caught him kissing away her tears And he's in the infirmary now Oh, he's in the infirmary now His wife consent to collect the rent So he's in the infirmary now Under a spreading chestnut tree The smith a mighty man was he A horses shoe behind before Once kicked him hard in the early door And he's in the infirmary now Oh, he's in the infirmary now What makes him frown, he can't sit down Co he's in the infirmary now.
