I COULDN'T LET THE STABLE DOWN (Harry Gifford / Fred E Cliffe / George Formby) as recorded by George Formby June 27th 1939 I'm faithful to my comrades, my motto's loyalty, I run straight With my stable mates And they run straight with me. "Come on George!", you'll hear them roar, Ten to one I'll start for sure, I'll pass the post by half past four, I couldn't let the stable down! To race in France I'll begin, Quesque c'est, tres bon, chin-chin! I learnt that off a sardine tin, I couldn't let the stable down! We've got pride Put on side, Ride the high horse too. If we're late At the starting gate, The horse will pull us through! Cast-off clothes I used to sell, In riding breeches I look swell, A girl said, "Cast off those as well!", I couldn't let the stable down! Near the town hall yesterday, With my horse I couldn't stay, They said, "The mayor might come that way" And I couldn't let the stable down! "Your stomach's wrong!", said Doctor Drew, "Diet!" I said, "If I do, Me favourite colours are pink and blue!", I couldn't let the stable down! We've got pride Put on side, Ride the high horse too. If we're late At the starting gate, The horse will pull us through! In our nudist camp, by gosh, What I wear makes me look posh. A nice transparent mackintosh, I couldn't let the stable down! With Violet I went in a wood, The wood violets were all in bud. When I found out that Violet would, I couldn't let the stable down! I know a girl, when nights are fine, Walks in her sleep, she looked divine. Tonight I'm going to walk in mine, I couldn't let the stable down! <> We've got pride Put on side, Ride the high horse too. If we're late At the starting gate, The horse will pull us through! A dame said, "For a sport that's real, Shoot at my country seat at Deal!" I hit it three times off the reel, I couldn't let the stable down! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2017)
