Thread Name: Origins: Who was the 'Five Foot Flirt'?
Subject: DT Correction: Five Foot Flirt
I listened to the Cyril Tawney recording on the Navy Cuts album and came up with a few corrections. Any others?

FIVE FOOT FLIRT
(Cyril Tawney)

Now don't say Jim Johnson weren't with 'ee last night
I heard him as plain as could be
I was crossing the mound when I heard a strange sound
Down by the sycamore tree
I thought perhaps a cow had got stuck in the mud
And pulled out her foot with a moo
But I'm satisfied now that that noise weren't a cow
It was Jim kissing you


Remember what happened last Saturday night
The air was so peaceful and still
Like a bolt from the blue came a hullabaloo
A growling and a cackling so shrill
It came to me head as I crawled from me bed
There's a fox at me chickens, that's true
I crept out in me socks and bumped into the fox
It was Jim kissing you
CHORUS

Now what's your excuse for last Sunday in church
It fair turned the poor vicar grey
While the organist was rendering, "Lead Kindly Light"
Jim Johnson kept pumping away
Then all of a sudden the organ stopped short
The vicar got into a stew
When he went round behind tell me what did he find
He found Jim kissing you
CHORUS
