YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS (Wilcock, Rutherford) As recorded by: Leslie Sarony, Acc. By Jay Wilbur’s Band Recorded January 1935 Somebody born every minute Each moment that somebody dies Each tick of the clock someone’s kicked in the pants And clicks for a nasty surprise Some say that our troubles are nothing but bubbles But Lor what a mess when they burst If it’s true as they say every dog has its day Then mine must be April the first I’ve got an old aunt who’s been fond of me For years and years and years I know she’s been saving her LSD For years and years and years She’s nearly a hundred there isn’t a doubt One foot in the grave but dear old Doctor Prout Says the other will still go on wagging about For years and years and years I haven’t set eyes on my Uncle Ted For years and years and years He used to make very good money they said For years and years and years He did make good money, that I must allow One day the police got to hear it somehow And we shan’t see him round at the good old Dunn Cow For years and years and years Old Brown was so fat that it damaged his health For years and years and years His doctor advised him to diet himself For years and years and years He starved till he had to have tucks in his clothes He shouted one night as he noticed his toes Well, lumee, I haven’t set eyes upon those For years and years and years A nice folding bed we had hidden away For years and years and years To put up our friends when they wanted to stay For years and years and years But sorry to say like the old mistletoe bough Something went wrong with the spring somehow And my mother-in-law has been shut in it now For years and years and years (Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection by Bill Huntley - October 2013)
