You can hear this song at YouTube:

[The recording has lots of patter, sound effects, crowd sounds that I have not bothered to transcribe.]


'APPY 'AMPSTEAD
As sung by Gracie Fields, 1932.

Can't you 'ear the charabang coming down the Old Kent Road?
All the blooming lot of us are going to make a fine old load.
There's Blimey Bill from Denmark 'Ill.
What a dilly at the coconut shy!
And the New Cross bunch with their beer and lunch
All ready when the driver cries:

All aboard for 'Appy 'Ampstead, where the 'Arrys and the 'Arriets go.
All aboard for 'Appy 'Ampstead. It's better than the Lord Mayor's show.
We won't 'alf 'oller and we won't 'alf shout
When we get Aunt Lizzie on the roundabout.
All aboard for 'Appy 'Ampstead, where the 'Arrys and the 'Arriets go.

There's Bill's old woman in 'er Sunday silks
With a pint of shandy and a plate of whelks.
All aboard for 'Appy 'Ampstead, where the 'Arrys and the 'Arriets go.

What a bloomin' 'ow-do-ye-do! Now mother's lost 'er tit-for-tat.
Someone's pinched the sandwiches, so now we'll 'ave to chew the fat.
Old Auntie Peg's lost 'er cork leg,
And the police 'ave gone and done it on Joe.
There's a blighter 'ere collared all the beer,
But are we down'earted? No!

All aboard for 'Appy 'Ampstead, where the 'Arrys and the 'Arriets go.
Any more for 'Appy 'Ampstead? It's better than the Lord Mayor's show.
Good Liza dancing up at Old Jack Straw's,
And she don't mind showing 'em 'er white lace drawers.
All aboard for 'Appy 'Ampstead, where the 'Arrys and the 'Arriets go.

I can 'ear Bill's missus shouting, "Arthur! Now
Keep yer blinkin' peepers off that net girl's show!"
All aboard for 'Appy 'Ampstead, where the 'Arrys and the 'Arriets go.


[Apparently not the same song as 'APPY 'AMPSTEAD, written by John Crook and Albert Chevalier, published 1893.]
