ONLY A WORKING MAN (Herbert Rule / Fred Holt 1923) as recorded by Lily Morris with Stan Greening & his Orchestra February 10th 1927 When you pick up your Sunday morning papers, It's nearly always trouble that you read; Man and wife, Always ‘aving strife, For separation each of them will plead! Now if the woman only used a little bit o' tact, With ‘appiness they always would be blessed! Do the same as I do and you'll never ‘ave a row, Believe me, my old man's one of the best! I wake him every mornin' when the clock strikes eight, I'm always punctual, never never late, With a nice cup o' tea and a little round o' toast, The Sporting Life and the Winning Post. I make him nice and cosy, then I toddle off to work, I do the best I can, For I'm only doing what a woman should do, ‘Cause he's only a working man! I ‘urry home each day and cook the dinner And give it to ‘im nice and ‘ot in bed! It's nice to know, When to work I go, He's always thinking of me, so ‘e said! He lies in bed so patiently till I come ‘ome to tea, I wouldn't ‘ave him vexed at any cost, And if ‘e backs a loser, never says an angry word, ‘Cause I give ‘im back the money that he's lost! I wake him every mornin' when the clock strikes eight, I'm always punctual, never never late, With a nice cup o' tea and a little round o' toast, The Sporting Life and the Winning Post. I make him nice and cosy, then I toddle off to work, I do the best I can, For I'm only doing what a woman should do, ‘Cause he's only a working man! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - May 2017)
