Subject: Lyr Req: A Paddy Roberts Song, please ?

Can anyone help, please ? I'm after the lyric of a Paddy Roberts song (I think !), which starts

"I'm going out with a blowsy old trout called Sadie" . . .

Bryn

The song is "I Love Mary"

I love Mary, shy little blue-eyed Mary
Warm and glowing as an autumn sky
Sweet, sweet Mary, never a bit contrary
And I'll love her 'til the day I die

But I'm going out with a blowsy old trout called Sadie
She's right on the ball but she ain't what you'd call a lady
But she's twice as rich as Croesus, sleeps in golden fleeces
And when I see the dough, my principles go to pi-pi-pieces
I'm weak in the head when it comes to the ready money
Just jingle the tin, very soon I'll begin to dance
And though I love Mary, pretty little Mary
Mary doesn't stand a chance

Yes, I've got a date with a crabby old crate called Sadie
Got a face like a cart and believe me she's not a lady
As a beauty she's a stumer, but I'll keep my sense of humour
I can "summon a laugh" as long as she's got that old mazuma
So I put out the cat and do this and that for Sadie
And if I keep my health I can end up a wealthy man
And though I love Mary, bentle little Mary
Mary doesn't suit my plan
Mary's just an also-ran

The only bit of the lyric I'm not sure of is "summon a laugh" in the last verse - I've just listened to the track three times (I have it on my Zune - I also had a Betamax!) and I'm afraid PR's normally excellent diction doesn't make this clear.

Cheers

Alan

Dohh..

After another listen, I think it should be "I'll put up with a lot", and of course, Mary is gentle, not bentle!!!

I think you'll find (to retain the internal rhyme) it's:
"I can stomach the lot, as long as she's got ..."

Cheers
Nigel

of course there may be more than one recording!
