Grab yourself someone to fry your eggs and bacon Why, she can live just like a queen on what you're makin' 'Cos this and that's a lot cheaper And they ????? a lot cheaper So, honey, now's the time to fall in love (Benny Goodman clarinet solo) Potatoes are reduced in price Tomatoes cost considerably less Now's the time to jolly-well fall in love There's many a spinster in good old Westminster Who's looking for a blooming turtle dove In America they drink this beastly coffee With an English lass and of your tea and toffee King George expects every marriage to fill up a carriage So, now's the time to jolly-well fall in love (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2007)
