YOU DON'T NEED A LICENSE FOR THAT Fred E Cliffe / George Formby George Formby rec March 23rd 1936 also rec by Andy Eastwood If you've a pub or a small hotel, You need a license for all you sell! Huh, you may think I'm romancin', But they even tax you for singin' and dancin'! You need a license, whatever you do, One or two things they've exempted, it's true; Lumbago, the gout, or a touch o' the 'flu, You don't need a license for that! Now I've got a license for chickens to lay; One of them sat on a brick yesterday, And then started cluckin', as much as to say, "He-he! You won't need a license for that!". We've had a good time, A "wines in the wood" time; if it were duty free, We'd cut the taxes With our battleaxes, Then roll out the barrel for me! There is much license, you bet on your life, If you keep a cow, then there's trouble and strife! As farmer Dean said when he looked at his wife, "By gum, I'll not need a license for that!". You need a license for shootin' down game, But I'd rather flirt with a beautiful dame, 'Cause I get the sport with the birds just the same, And I don't need a license for that! We sit in the pictures, as warm as a glove, In the back row of the circle above; Two bobs' worth of dark and a basin of love, And I don't need a license for that! We've had a good time, A "wines in the wood" time; if it were duty free, We'd cut the taxes With our battleaxes, Then roll out the barrel for me! Fishing at Richmond is licensed by law; A chap to his girl said, "Now you hold your jaw! He-he! You know exactly what I'm fishing for, And I don't need a license for that, no sir! And I don't need a license for that! (Contributed by Peter Akers - December 2010)
