HE WOOED HER AND WOOED HER AND WOOED HER Cecil Harrington / Jack Lupus 1935 as rec by Gracie Fields w Phil Green & his Orch 1943 He was a lad in his twenties, She was a girl in her teens. The time, it was when there was Spring in the air, And everyone knows what that means! Without any doubt he decided That she was the one in his life, So he knelt on his right knee and twisted his left, And asked her if she'd be his wife! Oh, he wooed her and wooed her and wooed her; She wouldn't say yes there and then, 'Cause her mother had said she was much too young, So he wooed her and wooed her again! He was a lad in his thirties, She in her twenty third year. He still loved the girl but she still answered no, So he dropped a strong silent tear. And when he was passing his forties, She said, "I want you for my own, But 'twould break mother's heart if I now were to wed, And she'd hate to be left all alone!". So he wooed her and wooed her and wooed her; She wouldn't say yes there and then, 'Cause her mother had said she was much too young, So he wooed her and wooed her again! He was a lad in his sixties, She was about fifty three, And he was still crazy to wed, but her ma Still warbled "The Isle Of Capri"! And when he had grown to the eighties, He told her that he'd done his best! And though he'd been faithful for fifty nine years, He was only a man like the rest! Still he wooed her and wooed her and wooed her; She wouldn't say yes there and then, 'Cause her mother had said she was much too young, So he wooed her and wooed her again! He was a hundred and twenty, She about hundred and four, And he had entirely given up hope, Till her ma went and married once more! At last the girl said she would wed him, And though it may sound very weird, For the poor stork had waited for so many years That it flew down the flu with a beard! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Oh, he wooed and he wooed and he wooed her; She didn't say no any more, So he cuddled and kissed and he wooed, he did, As he never had wooed her before! He-he-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Got ya! Got ya! Got ya at last! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - June 2011)
