Bainbo Lyr Req: I Do Like A S'Nice S'Mince S'Pie (19) RE: Lyr Req: I Do Like A S'Nice S'Mince S'Pie 09 Jun 10


Cosmotheka revived that Robin redbreast song a few years ago. From memory, the chorus and one of the verses went:

I never get the knock
When the boys shout: "Cock
Cockety-ock-cock
Cock Robin!"
In me old red vest I mean to cut a shine
And walking down the street they call me "Danger On The Line"
But the more they call me Robin Redbreast, I'll wear it longer still
I will have a red waiscoat, I will -
I will, I will, I will, I will, I will

Well some funny things have happened, I can tell you on the bright.
Standing on the corner of the street the other night
Waiting for a bus 'cause I intended going south,
A fellow came along and he popped a letter in me mouth.
Well, "I'm no letter box," I said, "Remember that."
And just as he was grinning at me like a Cheshire cat,
A postman he came on the scene and drove me up the pole -
He dropped his sack and stuck his key right in me button 'ole

But I never get the knock ...


There are other verses relating similar hilarious incidents. But I can't remember them.
