JWB Lyr Req: Four Horse Charabanc / -'Oss Sharrybang (19) Lyr Add: FOUR-HORSE CHARABANC 16 Aug 07


My friend has shared more lyrics with me. Does this honk any horns?

FOUR HORSE CHARIOT
> Oh will I am, Oh will I am,
> I've been to the sea side.
> I've seen a four horse Charabanc
> Say's I, "I'll take a ride".
>
> The fare was eighteen pence I know,
> Twas a lot of money for me.
> But you can't do a thing on the cheap will I am,
> When you're in society
> No you can't do a thing on the cheap will I am,
> When you're in society.
>
> There were eleven ole ladies all setting in a row,
> Each sucking on a peppermint drop.
> And each had a bottle of something,
> Like ole my ginger pop.
>
> Says one old gal, says she to me,
> "Would you like to have a drop".
> Says I "You're a nice ole cup-o-tea",
> Say she, "Oh go along".
> Says I "You're a nice ole cup-o-tea",
> Say she, "Oh go along".
>
> There was one ole lady in a great big hat,
> with a feather of heavenly blue,
> Says she, "Young man I'm a thinking
> that this hat would 'bout suit you".
> Says she, "Young man Im a thinking
> that this hat would bout suit you".
>
> So we both changed hats and how
> we laughed and cried and never mind.
> High toned music is a little melancholy,
> But it's always so refoined.
> High toned music is a little melancholy,
> But it's always so refoined.

It strikes me as a bit muddled. I haven't checked this set of lyrics against the sheet music linked above by Mick; perhaps that will help these words fall into place better.
