HOME JAMES AND DON’T SPARE THE HORSES (Frank Hillebrand) Ambrose & his Orchestra V. Elsie Carlisle Recorded 11 December 1934 It was in the gay nineties One night at a swell affair She was dressed in her best Sunday bustle And wore a rat in her hair Her lover was not tall or handsome But he was a terrible flirt He spent the entire evening Making up to every skirt Angrily she reproached him He heeded not at all So she in her best Sunday bustle Went flouncing out of the hall She swept down the steps so majestic To her footman standing below And in accents loud and clear She told him where to go (Oooooooooh) Home James and don’t spare the horses This night has been ruined for me Home James and don’t spare the horses I’m ruined as ruined can be (Oooooooooh) (Home James and don’t spare the horses) This night has been ruined for me (Home James and don’t spare the horses) I’m ruined as ruined can be We’re still in the gay nineties It is the very next day Our hero’s forlorn ‘cos his girl’s gone And don’t know just what to say He thinks that he’s better do something To win her again for his own ‘cos she was his very best sweetheart She was always good for a loan He goes straight to her mansion And says, “forgive me, dear” And as he tried to embrace her She gave him a boot in the reat He swept down the steps so majestic And her footman booted him too And as they threw him in the road He said, “Hmmm, to you” (Oooooooooh) Home James and don’t spare the horses Ride right through the main part of town Home James and don’t spare the horses He’ll stand up ‘cos he can’t sit down (Oooooooooh) Home James and don’t spare the horses My lover is just a bit tight Home James and don’t spare the horses He shall sleep in the stable tonight Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - January 2013)
