IT'S ALL RIGHT IN THE SUMMERTIME (Fred Murray / Geo Everard 1904) My old man is a very funny chap, He's an artist in the Royal Academy. He paints pictures from morning until night, Paints 'em with his left hand, paints 'em with his right. All his subjects, take the tip from me, Are very very "Eve and Adamy", And I'm the model that has to pose For his pictures every day. And it's all right in the Summertime, In the Summertime it's lovely! While my old man's painting hard, I'm posing in the old back yard. But oh, oh, in the Wintertime It's another thing, you know, With a little red nose And very little clothes, And the stormy winds do blow, oh oh! One day I am a Cupid with a dart, And another day a fairy beautiful. I pose as Venus arising from the sea, In the water butt with the water to my knee. Then he hangs me out up on the line, You see, I have to be so dutiful. As I hang there, oh he paints me as An angel in the sky! And it's all right in the Summertime, In the Summertime it's lovely! While my old man's painting hard, I'm posing in the old back yard. But oh, oh, in the Wintertime It's another thing, you know, With a little red nose And very little clothes, And the stormy winds do blow, oh oh! My old man, oh he plays a funny game, And I've only just begun to tumble him. All day long he's a-running out for paint, But the paint is whisky, don't you think it ain't! These are all the clothes I've got to wear, But I've made up my mind to humble him. I'll take a walk up the west one day, Just dressed up as I am! And it's all right in the Summertime, In the Summertime it's lovely! While my old man's painting hard, I'm posing in the old back yard. But oh, oh, in the Wintertime It's another thing, you know, With a little red nose And very little clothes, And the stormy winds do blow, oh oh! (Contributed by Peter Akers - March 2016)
