I ONLY ARSKED (Sid Colin) Bernard Bresslaw - 1959 When I was born, I gave the Doc What was, to put it mild, a very nasty shock When I was ready to be fed I didn't scream and go all red I only arsked, I only arsked When I was just a lad of three MyDaddy said, "Now, Son, what would you like to be?" I said, "Iin twenty years or more I'd like to be aged twenty-four" I only arsked, I only arsked I love asking questions I never get upset But oh dear, dear, you ought to 'ear The stupid answers I get When I was five, I asked me Mum "Oh, won't you tell me please, from where did baby come" "You come from Heaven, don't you know" I said, I thought I come from Bow" I only arsked, I only arsked (Instrumental Break) 'Ere, that's nice, better than porridge, that But d'you think we might have it like a little bit more pianissimo Well, it was only an enquiry You know what I like to hear A nice pizzicato passage on the fiddles With just a touch of' 'arpsichord See, you can do it if you try I love asking questions I never get upset But oh dear, dear, you ought to 'ear The stupid answers I get So, when I'm old and going grey And children ask me for advice, to them I'll say Whenever something puzzles you Do what I always used to do I only arsked, I only arsked (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2015)
