GUEST,Jacqued Chimney Sweep Songs Not Found on Disney (29) RE: Chimney Sweep Songs Not Found on Disney 26 Nov 03


A Dave & Evardson song from CD Crosby Road (e.mail david.evardson@ntlworld.com) is most definitely not al la Disney:

I'LL BE UP YOUR FLUE NEXT WEEK

Now the place where I'm in lodgings it's got a smoky flue,
It smokes right through the kitchen, I don't know what to do.
My landlady she said to me my flue you'll have to sweep,
But I'm very busy now with another old flue,
I'll be up her flue next week.

I'll be up her flue next week, I'll be up her flue next week,
I'm very busy now with another old flue,
When your brush gets warm well you can't sweep two.
In my line of business it's very hard to speak,
When I get another brush I'll be coming with a rush,
I'll be up her flue next week.

It's up a thousand chimneys my brush I've had to prod,
And many a lady's marvelled at my antics with my rod.
I always keep 'em satisfied with a flush upon their cheek,
So give me a call, I'll sweep for you all, I'll be up your flue next week.

I'll be up your flue next week, I'll be up your flue next week,
So give me a call, I'll sweep for you all, my brush is large but my fees are small.
I'm ever so efficient with a beautiful technique,
I'll take things steady and I'll come when you're ready, I'll be up your flue next week.

While looking through the paper at the matrimonial part,
I saw a great big advert, it really made me start.
It said apply at number ten, Tottenham Court, West Ham.,
There's a pretty little widow with a thousand quid,
And she wants a nice young man.

I'll be up her flue next week, I'll be up her flue next week,
A pretty little widow with a thousand quid, I don't care if she's a thousand kids.
If she wants a husband to tickle her so to speak,
Well swelp my feather, I'll tickle her forever, I'll be up her flue next week.

Now our old Tom is a fine old Tom, he's the best around for miles,
And our old Tom met your old Tom whilst strolling on the tiles.
And our old Tom told your old Tom of a female cat he knew,
A pretty little pussy from the Isle of Man and our old Tom said Meou!

I'll be up her flue next week, I'll be up her flue next week,
A pretty little pussy from the Isle of Man, I'll teach her the dance of the eye-can-can.
Tell her that I'll meet her down Pussy Morgan Street,
I'm not very fussy and I'm looking for a pussy, I'll be up her flue next week.

I'll be up her flue next week, I'll be up her flue next week,
A pretty little pussy from the Isle of Man, I'll teach her the dance of the eye-can-can.
Tell her that I'll meet her down Pussy Morgan Street,
I'm not very fussy and I'm looking for a pussy, I'll be up - her - flue - next - w-e-e-e-k.
