I'M MAKING HEADWAY NOW (Harry Gifford / Fred E Cliffe / George Formby) as recorded by George Formby June 27th 1939 Hello old pal, I'm glad we met, I've grown quite fond of you. You're quiet as a lamb, but don't forget We'll show 'em what's to do! One another, we'll stand by, To prove my words I mean to try, You've got a kick and so have I, I'm makin' headway now! Of wheat and chaff we've ample stores, I know I'll never starve because When I've eaten mine I'll start on yours, I'm makin' headway now! I've got my ambition, I'll be the talk of the town. I'll hold my position, They can't keep a growin' lad down! I joined a gym for exercise, A lady instructor put me wise, She made me spare parts twice the size, I'm makin' headway now! I've got a job and I mean to score, For me there's somethin' good in store, I won't clean winders anymore, I'm makin' headway now! I take a horsebox to the course, That takes quite a lot of force, I must be strong to box a horse, I'm makin' headway now! I've got my ambition, I'll be the talk of the town. I'll hold my position, They can't keep a growin' lad down! Once I phoned the railway folk, "Give me the goods!" A lady spoke, She said, "I'm the goods!", and I said, "That's oke!", I'm makin' headway now! I mean to join the ARP, The Fire Brigade and the CID, I might even join the BBC, I'm makin' headway now! A heavyweight I had to fight, I said, "In me left there's dynamite, And a couple of horseshoes in me right!", I'm makin' headway now! I'll hold my ambition, I'll be the talk of the town. I'll hold my position, They can't keep a growin' lad down! Said the girl, "If your wife I should be, Of children I'd like two or three". I said, "You can leave all that to me!", I'm makin' headway now! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2017)
