Long Firm Freddie Grovelling Songs (Male?) (89* d) RE: Grovelling Songs (Male?) 18 Aug 13


I found this one one Monologues.co.uk - they now have lyrics to over 2,000 Music Hall songs:

HANNAH, WON'T YOU OPEN THE DOOR?

(Hannah, Hannah, Open the door it's Bill)

Bill's at the door, chilled to the core
Please baby, Hannah, take me back once more
Here in the snow, I'm shivering so
My bones are rattling in breezes that blow
Hannah, be nice, I'm cold as ice
Why don't you answer me Babe I've knocked twice
I'm hungry too, smell chicken stew
Hannah I loves only you.

Chorus: Hannah, Hannah, won't you open that door?
Hannah, Hannah, won't you change your manner
This is old Billy Johnson don't you love him no more?
And I pleads, 'cos I needs
That place behind the stove that I used to have before
Hannah, Hannah, don't you hear me, Won't you open that door.

(If you don't open that door I'm going to kick it in, you hear me?)

Hannah, Hannah, let me in please, honest I'll freeze
I'll surely catch the grip starting to sneeze
Please stop that rhyme, gal it's a crime
Singing that song about old Summer time
Frost bitten, nose like a beak
I'm frozen sure honey I want some heat
I love you still, I always will
Open that door Babe it's Bill.

Chorus: Hannah, Hannah, won't you open that door?
Hannah, Hannah, won't you change your manner
This is old Billy Johnson don't you love him no more?
And I pleads, 'cos I needs
That place behind the stove that I used to have before
Hannah, Hannah, don't you hear me, Won't you open that door.

Written and composed by Sam and Kirk McGee - 1927
Performed by Ella Retford (1886-1962)

Here's a link to the song as performed by Sam McGee:
