WALTER, WALTER WHAT ABOUT THE ALTAR (Harper, Darby, Brown) As recorded by: Leslie Sarony (Comic) Acc. By A studio band Dir. Jay Wilbur Recorded in January 1933 Walter Wise was one of the guys who wouldn't spend a bean He'd rather walk than take a bus, he was so awful mean To his girl's house he'd wander round and stay there half the night And when the evening sun was down they'd sit without a light He wouldn't give her presents, or buy her anything So one night her family all gathered round to sing Walter, Walter what about the altar When are you going to name the happy day Walter, Walter your neck is in the halter And we're going to lead you on your way When are the celebrations, don't make any mistake We'll borrow the decorations and hire a wedding cake So Walter, Walter what about the altar When are you going to name the happy day He'd pretend he couldn't hear so they'd shout all the more He'd push poor Mary off his lap and slam the bloomin' door They'd gather their relations then, about two hundred strong They'd shout 'Come off it, Shylock, are you going to keep us long' We'll whip round for your furniture, don't be afraid to leap There's lots of empty houses now, and bassinets are cheap So Walter, Walter what about the altar When are you going to name the happy day Walter, Walter your neck is in the halter And we're going to lead you on your way When are the celebrations, don't make any mistake We'll borrow the decorations and hire a wedding cake So Walter, Walter what about the altar When are you going to name the happy day. (Musical Break) When are the celebrations, don't make any mistake We'll borrow the decorations and hire a wedding cake So Walter, Walter what about the altar When are you going to name the happy day.
