Dave Sutherland Lyr Add: My Old Man's a Dustman - dirty verse (7) RE: Lyr Add: My Old Man's a Dustman - dirty verse 18 Apr 16

I remember the milkman verse being included in his rendition performed either at the London Palladium or at the 1960 Royal Command Performance, either way it was on television, and for some reason it stuck with me:-
"One day whilst in a café he spilled a milkman's tea,
The milkman stood to argue and he was six foot three,
I'm very, very sorry he cried out in remorse,
Then ran out of the café and kicked the milkman's horse"
If you can get hold of a copy of Harry Shapiro's autobiography of Alexis Korner there is a passage where Donegan talks at some length about the song, its origins and verses that he would not be allowed to sing.
