I couldn't find a complete recording of this song online. The best I could find was a medley that contained an abbreviated form of it. You can hear the medley at YouTube. This is the fifth song in the medley, after
1. I'M HENERY THE EIGHTH I AM
2. COVER IT OVER QUICK, JEMIMA
3. THE END OF MY OLD CIGAR
4. THE OLD RED LION


THE BEST THAT MONEY CAN BUY
As sung by Harry Champion

VERSE: I courted a girl named Martha Crump*,
And, oh, she was such a love of a lump!
I used to call her Jelly(?) because she was so nice and plump,
And when her mother wouldn't let her out, I used to sigh.
All me pals said, "What are you sighing for?" To them I would cry:

CHORUS: She's the best that money can buy.
Hi-hi-tiddly-eye! She's the best that money can buy.
Twenty stone all around, all of it meat and none of it bone.
And she said ....(?)
Hi-hi-tiddly-eye! She's the best that money can buy.


* Harry Champion's real name was William Crump.

Anybody have any more lyrics?
