LITTLE OLD LADY OF THREADNEEDLE STREET, THE (Larry Stock / Guy Wood / James Cavanaugh) Kay Kyser & His Orch. (vocal: Harry Babbitt) - 1948 She stands on the corner, not far from the Strand So busy arranging her newspaper stand Her manner is gentle, her smile is so sweet The little old lady of Threadneedle Street The bankers and brokers all seek her advice Believe it or not she's been right once or twice They toss her a token, so happy to meet The little old lady of Threadneedle Street Once she knew the glory of living a life that was grand Now her only glory is the memory of him that nothing can dim So, whether the weather be foggy or fair She'll hand you your paper with such debonaire A queen all the way from her head to her feet The little old lady of Threadneedle Street (Instrumental Break) So there on the corner with such debonaire She'll hand you your paper, though you're unaware She once had a fortune, the world at her feet The little old lady of Threadneedle Street (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2018)
