LET'S HAVE A TIDDLEY AT THE MILK BAR (Noel Gay) as recorded by Nellie Wallace with The New Mayfair Dance Orchestra conducted by Ronnie Munro October 1936 Milk bar; I'd like to know Just how they grow And why we see them everywhere! Milk bar; Is it the dairy Or the fairy To decide to put them there? Milk bar; I used to think It was a drink For little kids of two or three. Milk bar; But now for days The only way, The daily way for you and me! So let's have a tiddley at the milk bar, Let's make a night of it tonight! Let's have a tiddley at the milk bar, Let's paint the town a lovely white! You buy half a pint, I'll buy half a pint, We'll try to drink a pint somehow. So let's have a tiddley at the milk bar, And drink to the dear old cow! (Ha, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Ah yes!) Milk bars; They sell the liquor That the vicar Can't complain about at all! Milk bar; You go to bed Instead of sleeping in the hall! Milk bar; I wish they'd been Upon the scene When dear old father went astray! Milk bars; I don't suppose His ruddy nose Would be the same it is today! So let's have a tiddley at the milk bar, Let's make a night of it tonight. Let's have a tiddley at the milk bar, Let's paint the town a lovely white! You buy half a pint, I'll buy half a pint, We'll try to drink a pint somehow. So let's have a tiddley at the milk bar, And drink to the dear old cow! [spoken] Now it's great, it's a glorious institution! What do you do when you see an old friend? You say, "Come and 'ave one!". Now you take him by the arm, You say, "Come and have a tiddley at the milk bar!". Ha-ha! And what's more you can have half a dozen, And come out the same way as you went in! No muzzy heads, no looking for a lamp post that isn't there! [sung] So let's have a tiddley at the milk bar, And drink to the dear old cow! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - December 2014)
