THE DEEPEST SHELTER IN TOWN (Jones) Florence Desmond Don't run away mister Oh, stay and play mister Don't worry if you hear the sirens go Though I'm not a lady of the highest virtue I wouldn't dream of letting anything hurt you And so before you go, I think you ought to know I've got a cosy flat, there's a lace for your hat I wear a pink chiffon négligé gown And do I know my stuff, but if that's not enough I've got the deepest shelter in town. I've got a room for two, a radio that's new, An alarm clock that won't let you down, And I've got central heat, but to make it complete, I've got the deepest shelter in town. Every modern comfort I can just guarantee If you hear the siren call then it's probably me And, sweetie, to revert, I'll keep you on the alert I won't even be wearing a frown So you can hang around here until the all clear In the deepest shelter in town. Now honey, I don't sing of an Anderson thing Climbing in one you look like a clown But if you came here to see, why Sir John would agree I've got the deepest shelter in town. Now Mr. Morrison says he's getting things done, And he's a man of the greatest renown, But before it gets wrecked, I hope you'll come and inspect The deepest shelter in town. Now I was one of the first to clear my attic of junk, But when it comes to shelters nowadays it's all bunk. So honey, don't get scared, it's there to be shared And you'll feel like a king with a crown So please don't be mean, better men than you have been In the deepest shelter, The neatest shelter, The deepest shelter in town.
