Thread Name: Lyr Req: School in Cheltenham (from Tsai Chin)
Subject: Lyr Req: I (We) went to school in Cheltenham
After an exceedingly good sing and some very excellent port I suddenly part-remembered this song on Saturday night (from the recesses of my brain and from about 35 years ago!). I can remember that it started:

I (We) went to school in Cheltenham
At a fashionable ladies college
Where we learned what's what and acquired a lot
Of exceeding practical knowledge.


I loved my school in Cheltenham
Where the chestnut trees are shady
Where we learned of vice and all thing nice
Like a well accomplished lady

I do have it on an LP that we made of the show we were in at the time - but that means getting out the old 'gramophone', plugging it up (????) and trying to transcribe the words. So, decided you wonderful people were probably the soft option - I'm sure you won't let me down.

Thanks in anticipation.
