HOUSECOAT BLUES
         
Have you ever been in love my boys
With a girl with attitude?
You know, the kind, who will break wind
While gobbling up her food.
Now the girl I loved was beautiful
And I want you all to know
That I met her in the garden
Where the Millies grow.
                     
She was just the sort of creature boys
That nature did intend
To wear her housecoat in the street
And smoke a fag down to the end
And underneath, a pair of drawers
A hanging very low
And I met her in the garden
Where the Millies grow.
    
Did you ever see my Milly boys
With curlers in her hair
Sticking up two fingers boys
To those that stand and stare?
You'll find her at the pub my boys
Pink polish on her toes
And I found her in the garden
Where the Millies grow.
               
She could knock back the booze my boys
And thought she looked so cute
Lying heeled up on a sofa bed
As pissed as any newt.
But now she has got pregnant boys
And I want you all to know
Don't set foot in the garden boys
Where the Millies grow.
                 
(That song was sung by John McCormick to Pope Pious the tenth in 1941)
