LITTLE OF WHAT YOU FANCY DOES YOU GOOD, A (Fred W Leigh / George Arthurs 1915) as recorded by Marie Lloyd May 1915 I never was a one to go and stint myself, If I likes a thing I likes it and that's enough! But there's lots of people say that if you likes a thing a lot, It'll grow on ya and all that sort of stuff! So I likes me drop o' stout as well as anyone, But stout you know's supposed to make you fat! Ah, and there's many a lah-de-dah-de madam wouldn't dare to touch it, 'Cause it might spoil her figure, the silly cat! Now I always hold with having it if you fancy it, If you fancy it, that's understood! And suppose it makes you fat, I don't worry over that, 'Cause a little o' what you fancy does you good! I always like to take a little 'oliday, And we always has one, my old man and me. But the last time that we 'ad one, he sprung up a new idea, When he saw the ladies bathin' in the sea. He said what a man requires was change of everything, Ah, and he ought to take his 'olidays alone! You know, away from everyday affairs, so I says, "Very likely, Well if you'd like a little fortnight on your own," "I always hold with havin' it if you fancy it, If you fancy it, that's understood! But if that's your bloomin' game, I intend to do the same, 'Cause a little o' what you fancy does you good! I 'ad to catch a special train the other day, Ah, and I very nearly lost it I declare! But the guard said, "Come on, jump in missus!", and he bunged me in the first, And I saw a lovin' couple sittin' there. Oh, I could see the 'oneymoon was stamped all over them, And I was sorry for the lady and the gent, So I said, "Go on, excuse me if you want to have a cuddle, 'Ave a cuddle 'cause I'm going to have a nap". And I always hold with havin' it if you fancy it, If you fancy it, that's understood! And while you young couple spoon, I'll dream of my 'oneymoon, 'Cause a little o' what you fancy do's you good! And I always hold with havin' it if you fancy it, Get on with it, don't waste no time! And while you young couple spoon, I'll be at my 'oneymoon, 'Cause a little o' what you fancy does you good!
