concertina ceol Lyr Req: Sweet Fanny Adams (20) Lyr Add: SWEET FANNY ADAMS (Leslie Sarony) 30 Apr 04

this is it

Words and music by Leslie Sarony
As sung by The Two Leslies [Leslie Sarony and Leslie Holmes], 1937.

1. I'm fed up with misses and madams.
I'm fed up with love and romance.
The fault wasn't sweet Fanny Adams'.
The birds didn't give us a chance.

CHORUS: Oh, sweet Fanny Adams, blithe and gay!
On the old apple tree in the orchard, we carved our names in May.
But woodpeckers came in September and the woodpeckers would peck away.
Now all you can see on the old apple tree is "Sweet F A."

2. I said to my Fanny with feeling,
"Let's park in this field for romance."
I whispered, "With passion you're reeling."
She said, "No, it's ants in my pants." CHORUS

3. Those sunbathing times now are ending.
Few more orchard days now remain.
The chilly times onward are wending.
Now winter draws on again. CHORUS
