WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH UNCLE ARTHUR? >From the TV Series "Upstairs, Downstairs" (1971-75) (Music: Alexander Faris / Lyrics: Alfred Shaughnessy Pauline Collins (TV Soundtrack) - 1973 As performed in the TV Show: What are we gonna do with Uncle Arthur A blinkin' stallion is Uncle Arthur When he goes a-strollin' in the park Watch your step, girls, especially after dark Any old skirts a flirt for Uncle Arthur He's over eighty, but how he can run "Give us a kiss, M'Dear", he'd say And tickle you up the boom-de-aye And say it was just a 'armless bit o' fun A nice bruise on you where you sit A let me go, Uncle Arthur, kind o' fun What are we going do with Uncle Arthur 'Ave him doctored like a tomcat, No! You'd 'ave thought by now he'd had his fill But me Aunt can't bloody well keep him still Saturday night'll find him at the boozer 'Avin' a quick one, then off he will pop Straighten his hat and up the street As light as a feather on his feet A dirty old man who'd come, my daughter I'm glad he's not the sort'a Know when it's bloody well time for him to stop Hold on to your ha'penny, girls, he's behind ya! ******************** As recorded for record release: What are we gonna do with Uncle Arthur A blinkin' stallion is Uncle Arthur When he goes a-strollin' in the park Watch your step, girls, especially after dark Any old skirts a flirt to Uncle Arthur He's over eighty, but how he can run "Give us a kiss, M'Dear", he'd say And tickle you up the boom-de-aye And say it was just a 'armless bit o' fun What are we gonna do with Uncle Arthur 'Ave him doctored like a tomcat You'd'a thought by now he'd had his fill But me Aunt can't bloody well keep him still Saturday night'll find him at the boozer A couple o' pints there, then off he will pop Straighten his hat and up the street As light as a feather on his feet A dirty old man who don't know when to stop (Instrumental Break) What are we gonna do with Uncle Arthur A public nuisance is Uncle Arthur Though he's bald, deaf, dirty and decayed He's the uncrowned king o' the esplanade Nothin' on earth can seem to damp his ardour He's tryin' 'arder the older he grows One of these days he'll 'ave to die What will he get up to in the sky Well, Heaven and Uncle Arthur only You can be sure he won't be lonely Heaven and Uncle Arthur only knows Oi, Saint Peter, if there's any female angels up there Tell 'em to keep their wings done up And 'ang on to their trumpets Uncle Arthur's on his way up!
