From:
Robson, E. W., and M. M. Robson. The Film Answers Back: An Historical Appreciation of the Cinema. London: John Lane, 1947, page 78:

...Is the old house still in the same old place
With the same old picture on the wall?
Does father wear the same old trousers?
Mother the same old shawl?
Do you still keep a lodger in the top back room,
Still without a carpet on the floor?
Does the old tom-cat still spoon upon the mat
With the ginger-whiskered cat next door?...
