STIFF UPPER LIP From the film "Damsel In Distress" (1937) (Music: George Gershwin / Lyrics: Ira Gershwin) Gracie Allen (Film Soundtrack) - 1937 Kaye Ballard - 1954 Ella Fitzgerald - 1959 Maureen McGovern - 1989 Jodi Benson & Harry Groener (feat. in the Broadway show "Crazy For You") - 1992 Robert Austin & Ruthie Henshall (London Production of "Crazy For You") - 1993 TFN Musical Company - 2008 As recorded by ELLA FITZGERALD with Nelson Riddle & His Orch., July 17th 1959, Hollywood: What made Good Queen Bess such a great success? What made Wellington do what he did at Waterloo? What makes every Englishman a fighter through and through, It isn't roast beef or ale or home or mother, It's just a little thing they sing to one another! Stiff upper lip, stout fella, Carry on old fluff, Chin up, keep muddling through! Stiff upper lip, stout fella, When the going gets rough, Pip pip to old man trouble and a-toodley-oo too! Carry on through thick and thin If you feel you're in the right! Does the fighting spirit win? Quite, quite quite quite quite! Stiff upper lip, stout fella, When you're in a stew! Sober or blotto, This is your motto, Keep muddling through! When a bounder starts to hiss, You must give him blow for blow! Make the blighter say, "What's this? 'Allo 'allo 'allo 'allo 'allo!". Stiff upper lip, stout fella, When you're in a stew! Sober or blotto, This is your motto, Keep muddling through! Keep muddling through! Keep muddling through! Keep muddling through!
