NASTY UNCLE ADOLPH (Phil Park) As recorded by: Ambrose & His Orchestra V. Jack Cooper Recorded 29th September 1939 Also recorded by: Joe Loss & His Band Billy Cotton & His Band This war’s an awful nuisance and it’s all one fellow’s fault And now he’s got it started it’s too late to call a halt We’ve so much to put up with that we call him awful names For everything that happens, he’s the man the public blames We blame him for the sand bags that keep tripping up our feet For imitation coppers in tin hats on every beat Our air-raid wardens very blunt and simply too, too sweet So it’s just too bad for nasty Uncle Adolph He’s in for it now alright. A friend said, “I’ve and air raid shelter, sand bags by the score I’ve but some fairy lights around it, can you guess what for? They’ll see the lights and bomb it while we’re playing darts next door” So it’s just too bad for nasty Uncle Adolph He’s in for it now alright. It really is amazing how we hate that fellow’s name For everything that worries us, he has to take the blame We’re always out of petrol and we keep our headlights dim So if the girl gets out and walks, we go on blaming him We blame him for the lies that Goebbels tells of you and me Announcements and news bulletins galore from BBC And records of some chamber music opus 93 So it’s just too bad for nasty Uncle Adolph He’s in for it now alright. Since Goring started slimming he looks different on parade The tuck from all his uniforms rig out the boys brigade And now there isn’t room for all his medals, I’m afraid So it’s just too bad for nasty Uncle Adolph He’s in for it now alright.
