Subject: RE: Lyr Req: End of My Old Cigar
Clearly this original message was posted about five years ago, but hey, chutney tastes better if it is allowed to mature.
END OF ME OLD CIGAR is a classic - check Chas and Dave do it, totally brilliant. The lyrics are as follows:

Twenty Christmas eves ago, the landlord of The Star
Said, "Here's a Christmas box for you. Well, have a nice cigar."
I smoked it up to Easter, then me dear departed wife
Said "Why not throw the end away?" I said, "Not on your life.
It's the end of me old cigar, hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!"
I walk down Piccadilly and they think that I'm the Shah.
It ain't because I'm handsome, or I'm a lah-di-dah.
I tickled the ladies' fancy with the end of my old cigar.

Then there's a load of other equally classic verses but my bird is hassling me to give it a rest so that's your lot.
