I NEVER CRIED SO MUCH IN ALL MY LIFE (Will Haines / Jimmy Harper) Gracie Fields Joe took me to the pictures the other evenin', it was fine They called it The Betrayal, and the actin' was divine It's the best film that they've had for years round at the Hippodrome And it's a good job I took me handkerchief with me when I left home Oh-oh-oh-oh, it was a lovely picture and I did enjoy it so Oh-oh-oh-oh, I never cried so much in all my life When the villains seized the maiden everybody shouted "oh" Oh-oh-oh-oh, I never cried so much in all my life He told her that he'd wed her, ha-ha-ha, then enticed her on his yacht And then he got her tied up in a proper sailor's knot Then he kissed her twice, the dirty dog, upon her beauty spot Oh-oh-oh-oh, I never cried so much in all my life It takes a lot to make me cry but oh dear, when I start And think of what that girl went through I'm like a water cart I see her eyes, I hear her voice at night when I'm in bed And here's a scene I'll never, never get out of me head As she faced the blinding snow storm and came trudging through the town Oh-oh-oh-oh, I never cried so much in all my life Oh, and when I saw her carrying their baby upside down Oh..., I've never cried so much in all my life She lingered near the Rose and Crown, the wind was howlin' wild When up the village street, there came the father of her child So she tapped him for a tanner, for a pint of Old and Mild Oh..., I've never cried so much in all me life The villain called on her one night, she was his one desire, ha-ha yeah And because she wouldn't stand for him, what do you think he did, heh What do you think he did, hah, set the house on fire She rushed towards the window with her face all pale and sad But the villain only laughed ha-ha then walked away, the cad Oh, she looked so very pitiful upon the window sill Oh… I've never cried so much in all my life "Jump, jump" the people shouted, but she sat there calm and still Oh… I've never cried so much in all my life The flames burnt her kimona but she didn't seem to mind Then she slid down a ladder Oh, she did look so refined Till upon a rusty nail she left her underclothes behind Oh… I've never cried so much in all my life.
