IS ANYBODY LOOKING FOR A WIDOW? (Harry Gifford) Florrie Forde - 1909 Yolande Noble - 1909 I'm not the merry widow for I'm feeling far from gay Although I always wore a smile 'til poor John passed away For ever since the happy day that I became a wife I've always felt I couldn't have enough of married life Not very long do I intend a widow to remain For after all I don't see why I shouldn't wed again My one desire is for a friend who'll kind and loving be Someone to start where John left off and make a fuss of me So is anybody looking for a widow, mine's a most deserving case Poor John, now he's gone I want somebody to take his place I'll make a loving little wife if you want to get off this term And don't forget there's nothing like dealing with an old established firm I've got a cosy little flat that won't cost you a cent For John's insurance money is enough to pay the rent There's also two nice suits of clothes, he'd always get up strong The trousers I could shorten if you found they were too long A widow too should be preferred to any simple miss She knows the tricks of all the trade that brings connubial bliss I don't mind if he's dark or fair, he need not ask me twice For if he's anything like John, he must be very nice So is anybody looking for a widow, mine's a most deserving case Poor John, now he's gone I want somebody to take his place I'll make a loving little wife if you want to get off this term And don't forget there's nothing like dealing with an old established firm John couldn't see me want for cash, he wasn't quite that sort And though he wasn't liberal, he never kept me short He'd tell me just to help myself, although since we were wed His trousers ev'ry night he'd hang up his side of the bed Although I told poor John to wed again would be unkind I think if someone pressed me, I perhaps may change my mind The happy home is all complete, so pray don't be afraid And in case he's fond of children, I've a family ready made So is anybody looking for a widow, mine's a most deserving case Poor John, now he's gone I want somebody to take his place I'll make a loving little wife if you want to get off this term And don't forget there's nothing like dealing with an old established firm (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2018)
