I LIVE IN TRAFALGAR SQUARE (C W Murphy 1902) Morny Cash - 1902 Also recorded by: Stanley Holloway; Roy Hudd; Georgia Brown; Ian Whitcomb; Richard Thompson Today I've been busy removing, And I'm all of a fidgety-fidge, My last digs were on The Embankment, The third seat from Waterloo Bridge! But the cooking and oh! the attendance, Didn't happen to suit me so well, So I ordered my man to pack up and Look out for another hotel. He did, and the new place is extra I vow! Just wait till I tell you where I'm staying now: I live in Trafalgar Square, With four lions to guard me. Fountains and statues all over the place, And The Metropole staring me right in the face! I'll own it's a trifle draughty, But I look at it this way, you see, If it's good enough for Nelson, It's quite good enough for me! The beds ain't as soft as they might be, Still the temp'rature's never too high! And it's nice to see swells who are passing Look on you with an envious eye. And then when you wake in the morning, Just fancy how nice it must be To have a good walk for your breakfast, And the same for your dinner and tea! There's many a swell up in Park Lane tonight, Who'd be glad if he only had my appetite! I live in Trafalgar Square, With four lions to guard me. Fountains and statues all over the place, And The Metropole staring me right in the face! I'll own it's a trifle draughty, But I look at it this way, you see, If it's good enough for Nelson, It's quite good enough for me! When I think of those unlucky bounders, The Morgans and Clarence de Clares, Who are forced to put up at The Cecil, My tenderest sympathy's theirs! And to show I'm not selfish or greedy, I just tell each aristocrat That I don't mind exchanging apartments, Now, I can't say fairer than that! But the soft-headed sillies won't hear what I say, They still go on suff'ring, while I'm all okay! I live in Trafalgar Square, With four lions to guard me. Fountains and statues all over the place, And The Metropole staring me right in the face! I'll own it's a trifle draughty, But I look at it this way, you see, If it's good enough for Nelson, It's quite good enough for me! (Contributed by Peter Akers - March 2016)
