Thread Name: Songs about getting older?
Subject: Lyr Add: MY OLD DUTCH
Here's an old Cockney song.

My Old Dutch

Now I've got a gal, she's a regular out and outer
She's a dear old pal and I'll tell you all about her
It's many years since first we met,
Her hair was long and black as jet
It's whiter now but she don't fret, not my old gal

We've been together now for forty years and it don't seem a day too much
for there ain't a lady living in the land that I'd swap for my Dear Old Dutch.
No there ain't a lady living in the land that I'd swap for my Dear Old Dutch.
