WILL YOU LOVE ME WHEN I'M MUTTON From the film "We're Going To Be Rich" (1938) (R.P. Weston / Bert Lee) Gracie Fields (with Ray Noble & His Orch.) - 1938 SPOKEN INTRO: (BUTCHER: Here 'are. What about a nice drop o' lamb, dear. One and four the pound) (GRACIE: Don't talk t'me about lamb. I'm proper upset, you should 'ear what I've heard this mornin'......Two little lambs were in a field of clover. A He lamb and a She lamb. I'll explain. The She lamb gave the He lamb the once over. Then tenderly she bleated this refrain......) Will you love me when I'm mutton As you do now I am lamb Baa baa black sheep tell me do, tell me do Will you love me when I'm mutton Like a true and faithful ram Or will you tell me I'm too tough to chew When my one and four a pound is not so tender And there's no wool left upon my woollen fleece When you're sitting in the ice chest with me, Darling Oh, promise that you won't be cold to me Will you love me when I'm mutton As you do now I am lamb Baa baa black sheep tell me do, tell me do Will you love me when I'm mutton Like a true and faithful ram Though I'm cut up and you'll feel cut up, too Though my cupid darts are skewered, stuck in my shoulder And they've stuck a ticket where your tail should be When the butcher sells your kidneys, look for ????? ????? Oh, tell him that your heart is still for me Will you love me when I'm mutton As you do now I am lamb Baa baa black sheep tell me do, tell me do Will you love me on the Sunday When you're roasted like I am And when you're served up cold on Monday, too If you meet me in the soup upon the Tuesday Oh. promise you won't hide behind a pea And on Wednesday when they call us rissoles, Darling Oh, tell me that you'll be twin souls with me SPOKEN: (GRACIE: Well, I'm sure you'll admit it's a very, very sad story. Don't ya think so? (Baaa-baaa) Hey, hey, go on home before butcher sees ya! (Baaa-baaa) (Transcribed by Mel & Andy - June 2009)
