When I was 17, my boyfriend's elderly dad, used to sing it in the pub, next to his house. On Saturday night, they always had a sing-song, which I loved. His version was,
   It's the old song,
   in the old place,
   same old picture on the wall.
   Father wears the same old cady (cap)
   Mother wears the same old shawl.
   Still got the lodger in the old back room
   Still without the carpet on the floor
   Does the old Tom cat,
   Still spoon upon the mat,
   With the ginger cat that lives next door
I still sing this version, to my grandchildren, now I'm 68!
The village where I grew up, had regular concerts, where the old
Music Hall songs were sung!
