THE NIGHT THE FLOOR FELL IN (Ken Wheeley) Billy Cotton & His Band V. Alan Breeze and Chorus Charlie and his missus were a happy-go-lucky pair They threw a party every Saturday night With all of their relations, like the league of nations there It nearly always ended in a fight But there was one occasion on which they did agree And then they brought the house down with their joviality They danced the boomps-a-daisy And then the palais glide They did the hokey-cokey And laughed until they cried And when they had a knees-up And everyone joined in The only night they never fell out The blinkin’ floor fell in. Oh my, it wasn’t half a do With everybody happy Though they were black and blue Oh my, it really was a sin The only night they never fell out The night the floor fell in. Now Mrs. Brown was bending To button up her shoe Just then the carpet parted And she went sailing through They heard her saying after She put her teeth back in “The only time they ever fell out The blinkin’ floor fell in” Oh my, it wasn’t half a do With everybody happy Though they were black and blue Oh my, it really was a sin The only night they never fell out The night the floor fell in. An old cowpoke was sleeping Down in the room below A-dreamin’ of the dogies And cows he used to know And then the ceiling opened He got an awful fright He said, “Them riders in the sky Is ridin’ low tonight.” Oh my, it wasn’t half a do With everybody happy Though they were black and blue Oh my, it really was a sin The only night they never fell out The night the floor fell in. Now Charlie learnt his lesson Like all good men and true When he was at a party He knew just what to do If anyone was fighting He covered up his chin And for a dance he padded his pants In case the floor fell in. Oh my, it wasn’t half a do With everybody happy Though they were black and blue Oh my, it really was a sin The only night they never fell out I wondered what all the noise was about The only night they never fell out The night the floor fell in.
