Monday, my baby doll gets a-busy A-buzzin' around just like a honey bee She looks so neat and sugar pie A-washin' out my slim-jim tie Just scrubbin' away (Scubbin' away) Just a-scrubbin' away (Scrubbin' away) She gonna make me like a king for Sat'day night On a Tuesday my baby doll gets a-busy A-buzzin' around just like a honey bee She looks just like a candy packet A-brushin' up my new suede jacket Just a-brushin' away (Brushin' away) Just a-brushin' away (Brushin' away) She gonna make me like a king for Sat'day night On Wednesday my baby doll gets a-busy A-buzzin' around just like a honey bee She looks so neat I wanna dance A-creasin' up my drainpipe pants Just a-creasin' away (Creasin' away) Just a-creasin' away (Creasin' away) She gonna make me like a king for Sat'day night On a Thursday my baby doll gets a-busy-busy-busy-busy Buzzin' around just like a honey bee She's sweeter than a candy box A-wasin' out my two-tone socks Just a-washin' away (Washin' away) Just a-washin' away (Washin' away) She gonna make me like a king for Sat'day night On a Friday my baby doll gets a-busy-busy-busy-busy-busy Buzzin' around just like a honey bee She's fresher than tomorrow's news A-brushin' up my blue suede shoes Just a-brushin' away (Brushin' away) Just a-brushin' away, man (Brushin' away She gonna make me like a king for Sat'day night On Saturday my baby takes it easy She's layin' around just like a queenie bee She's a livin' doll and she's my date We're gonna rock to that eighty-eight Just a-rockin' away (Rockin' away) Just a-rockin' away (Rockin' away) I'm the King and she's the Queen on Sat'day night (What happens on Sunday) I'm the King and she's the Queen on Sat'day night ****** IDLE ON PARADE (Len Praverman)) Performed by Anthony Newley This is a camp that is a-mighty tough Were the marchin' men are made But I am a guy who doesn't dig that stuff And I'm idle on parade There is a man, a Sergeant-Major Lush And he has got to be obeyed (Yeah!) And in a voice just like a little thrush He says I'm idle on parade Now, when they gave me a rifle, well they went too far I'm much better off when I got a guitar I told the C.O. that I wanna be sent He sent me to a place where I could repent When I was a-free, I was a crazy pup Rock-a-boogie was my trade Now Captain Burton-Bassett says I'm all shook up And I'm idle on parade When they gave me a rifle, well they went too far I'm much better off when I got a guitar I told the C.O. that I wanna be sent He sent me to a place where I could repent When I was a-free, I was a crazy pup Rock-a-boogie was my trade Now Captain Burton-Bassett says I'm all shook up And I'm idle on para-a-a-a-a-ade (Idle on paraa-a-a-ade) ****** IDLE ROCK-A-BOOGIE (Anthony Newley / Joe Henderson) Performed by Anthony Newley and William Bendix (Wham- bam-boom, wham-bam-dee-boom) (Wham-bam-boom, wham-bam-dee-boom) (Wham bam-boom, wham-bam-dee-boom) (Wham bam-boom, wham-bam-dee-boom) Policemen came to fetch me in the wagon one morn' They said, "Now pretty daddy, don't you look so forlorn We hate to drag you out from under your looking glass But we need you in the Army just to give it some class" Just when I thought they'd missed me out That's when I heard the Sergeant-Major shoutin' ("Wham-bam-boom") (BENDIX: You're idle on parade) They dressed me all in khaki and they gave me a gun The colour didn't suit me, so I went on the run The Milit'ry Policeman kindly took me inside And then at my court-martial Sergenat-Major Lush cried Just when I thought they'd missed me out That's when I heard the Sergeant shoutin' "Wham-bam-boom" (BENDIX: You're idle on parade) The chow they serve is marvellous, right out o' the book We even have a special chef from Paris to cook When Mr. Burton-Bassett orders "Any complaints?" They have to get two men to hold the chef up when he faints Just when I thought they'd miseds me out That's when I heard the Sergeant shoutin' "Wham-bam-boom" (BENDIX: You're idle on parade) The Officers are gentlemen, treat us with care And our Commanding Officer believes in fresh air One day while on manoeuvres early, I held him call "If the enemy attacks, you'll find me by the eighteenth hole" Just when I thought they'd missed me out That's when I heard the Sergeant shoutin' "Wham-bam-boom" (BENDIX: You're idle on parade) (Instrumental Break) Just when I thought they'd missed me That's when I heard the Sergeant shoutin' "Wham-bam-boom" (BENDIX: You're idle on parade) Just when I thought they'd missed me That's when I heard the Sergeant shoutin' "Wham-bam-boom" (BENDIX: You're idle on parade) Wham-bam-boom, yeah! (BENDIX: You're idle!) ****** I'VE WAITED SO LONG (Jerry Lorden) Performed by Anthony Newley (So long, I've waited so long, (So long, I've waited so long) I've waited so long, a lifetime it seems For someone to step right out of my dreams All that an angel could be And meant for only me. Play me a tune, haunting and blue Tell me of dreams that never come true Sing me a lonely song Till she comes along It will be so wonderful When love comes my way No more lonely hours They'll just fade away Some day we'll meet Somewhere I know We'll kiss and say "I love you so, Darling" Surely I can't be so wrong For I've waited Yes, I've waited So very long So long, my darling (So long, I've waited so long) So long, my darling (So long, I've waited so long) So long, my darling, darling...........FADE ****** All songs transcribed and/or verified by Mel Priddle - January 2009) ******
