This seems to be it, Joe:


HONESTY IS OUT OF THE FASHION
(Matt McGinn)
As recorded by Matt McGinn on "Honesty Is Out of the Fashion" (1968)

CHORUS: Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today.
Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today.

1. The publican pay 11 pence a pint for beer from the brewery men,
Then he pour me pint on the counter, charges me 2 and 10. CHORUS

2. While the publican is serving me, he say: "How you like my shop?"
He pour my pint; I look and see an inch of froth on top. CHORUS

3. The grocer sell some ham to me; he charge 10 shillings a pound,
Then he put his thumb on the scale and press the damn thing down. CHORUS

4. To separate Dick Turpin from the shopkeepers is a task,
But I think I know the difference: Dick Turpin wore a mask. CHORUS

5. Adam and eve and Cain and Abel, there was only them and God,
But ... Cain he found himself a wife in the Land of Nod. CHORUS

6. St. Denis had his head cut off; he didn't fancy that.
He took it in his hands and walked two miles without his hat. CHORUS
