THE BARMAID AT THE ROSE AND CROWN (Arthurs / George Formby) George Formby - 1941 In town there is a little pub Which gives much satisfaction The men don't go there for the beer The barmaid's the attraction Her age is, oh well, quite all that And more on Monday morning She knows her onions, take my word She's heard the gypsy's warning She lays on powder as thick as crust I've smacked her cheek and what a fuss I couldn't see her face for dust The barmaid at the Rose and Crown She wears nice undies full of thrills All silken lace and saucy frills I know because I've seen the bills And paid `em at the Rose and Crown There is a tavern in the town, in the town And in that tavern there's a bust forty inches round She's got a figure fine and fair There's lots of it and some to spare It goes in here and comes out there The barmaid at the Rose and Crown She likes to think that you are hers And if you prove a quitter She'll cry into your class of mild And turn it into bitter She'll have a little drink with you And make you nice and cosy And if you never count your change You'll make a hit with Rosie She always looks so very posh So many rings she wears, by gosh Her hands she never has to wash The barmaid at the Rose and Crown The pendant round her neck is great It's larger than a dinner plate She's got round shoulders with 'the weight The barmaid at the Rose and Crown There is a tavern in the town, in the iown And in that tavern there's a lass in a glittering gown With jewellery she takes the bun Her ear-rings weigh quite half a ton She lets me swing on them for fun The barmaid atAt the Rose and Crown Now if you want her to seize And round her waist you give a squeeze You'll hear her shout, "Not this side please!" The barmaid at the Rose and Crown If she ever falls for you A kiss will last an hour or two She's got her lipstick mixed with glue The barmaid at the Rose and Crown There is a tavern in the town, in the town, And in that tavern there are lips that have won renown But if you tax her for a mug And ever try to sneak a hug She'll kick you in the "bottle and jug" The barmaid at the Rose and Crown
