IF A GREY HAIRED LADY SAYS "HOW'S YER FATHER?" (Ted Waite) Flanagan & Allen - 1939 Jack Warner - 1940 If a grey haired lady says "How's yer Father?" That'll be Mademoiselle If she smiles and says, "How's yer Father?" That will be Mademoiselle If she says, "Parlez-vous, toot suite, tell me do, How is he after all these years" If a grey haired lady says "How's yer Father?" That's Mademoiselle from Armentieres SPOKEN: You're going across the sea, my lad I wish you luck, my son (Thanks, Dad) You've got a great big job to do A job that must be done (Yes, Dad) If you should meet a lady there that I knew years ago (Yes?) Just give her my kind regards (How will I know?) If a grey haired lady says "How's yer Father?" Oh, that will be Mademoiselle If she smiles and says, "How's yer Father?" That will be Mademoiselle If she says, "Parlez-vous, toot suite, tell me do, How is he after all these years" If a grey haired lady says "Don't tell your Mother?" That's Mademoiselle from Armentieres SPOKEN: Ah, I remember one time, son We were coming out of the trenches And although Armentieres was eighty kilos away (Eighty kilometres, that's a long way, Dad) Yes, son, I went and saw her And another time we were going up the line at Passiondale And, you know, it was a dark anight and you could hear "Shell 'ole on the right, shell 'ole on the right, shell 'ole on the right Shell 'ole on the left, shell 'ole on the left, shell 'ole on the left" (FEMALE VOICE: Shell hole on the left) Huh-huh, there she was, Mademoiselle from Armentieres Coming up the line with us (Blimey, Dad, did you do any fightin' at all? Oi!) If she says, "Parlez-vous, toot suite, tell me do, How is he after all these years" If a grey haired lady says "Don't tell your Mother?" That's Mademoiselle from Armentieres (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2017)
