SWEET FANNY ADAMS' DAUGHTER Sanford as rec by Elsie Carlisle 1940's Fanny said, "If you'll only be a soldier, I'll love you!", And she said, "If you'll only join the army, I'll be fond and true!". So he joined up, and when he came back, There were umpteen soldiers lined up in a queue, But she fell for a fella filling sandbags, Three cheers for the red white and blue! Miss Fanny Adams was a charming little wench, Her father, he was British, and her mother, she was French. A lad courted Fanny and thought she was his alone; Would he have listened to her saying this if he had known? So he joined up, and when he came back, There were umpteen sailors lined up in a queue, But she fell for a fella filling sandbags, Three cheers for the red white and blue! Now who's the girl they idolise And presents they have bought her? Is it flat foot floogie had a fly fly? No! Who? It's Fanny Adams' daughter! Does she know the right from wrong, Lead lambs to the slaughter? Who knows what God gave mothers for? Who? Don't you know? Rather! Fanny Adams' daughter! Now she's her own battalion, Away across the water, And who do you think the commander is? Hitler? No! Hore Belisha? No! Uncle Tom Cobley? No! Fanny Adams? Ha-ha! It's Fanny Adams' daughter! So he joined up, and when he came back, There were umpteen airmen lined up in a queue, But she fell for a fella filling sandbags, Three cheers for the red white and blue! Three cheers for the red white and blue! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2011)
