NOW I HAVE TO CALL HIM FATHER (Charles Collins / Fred Godfrey) Ada Jones - 1908 I used to be as 'appy as the pigeons on the trees That's when I was courtin' and me mind was well at ease I used to feel so loving with me 'Enery by me side Looking forward to the day when I should be his Bride But now he's thrown me over and I'm full of misery Someone else has done me out of William 'Enery He used to come and court his little Mary Anne I used to think that he was my young man But Mother caught his eye and they got married on the sly Now I 'ave to call him Father He used to call me 'Dreamy Eyes' and take me on his knee Kiss me little ruby lips and make a fuss of me He bought a second-handed home to comfort me through life Now he's thrown me over for a second-handed wife And on the Weddin' Day when he was married to Mama He said, "Go and wash your face, and kiss your new Papa" When I got home this afternoon, it broke my 'art to see William cuddlin' Mother as he used to cuddle me At ten o'clock last night I felt I'd like to punch his head When he said to me, "Pop off, it's time to go to bed" The next young man I get, I'll let him see me to the door But I'll never introduce one to me Mother anymore He used to come and court his little Mary Anne I used to think that he was my young man But Mother caught his eye and they got married on the sly Now I 'ave to call him Father (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2003)
