Subject: Lyr Add: THE LITTLE PUDDEN BASIN (Gracie Fields)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 20 Mar 11 - 10:30 PM

You can play or download this song at The Internet Archive. It's song #8 on that page. Here's my transcription:

Words and music by Reginald S. Low
As sung by Gracie Fields

Old Auntie Flo was wealthy 'cause she'd always practiced thrift,
And when she died, she left her relatives a little gift.
Our cousin Joe, her favorite, had one all to himself.
'Twas the little pudding basin that stood on the kitchen shelf.
Oh, the little pudding basin that belonged to Auntie Flo
Is very much admired, for it's quite a curio.
When he's asked for a reference, well, all he has to show
Is the little pudding basin that belonged to Auntie Flo.

The day he married Ermintrude, it was a swell affair.
The Boy Scouts came in dozens; the police were also there.
They didn't have a cake, but on the table was displayed
A steak-and-kidney pudding that this Ermintrude had made
In the little pudding basin that belonged to Auntie Flo.
We had our photos taken as we stood there in a row.
We ran short of confetti and they'd nothing else to throw,
So we threw the pudding basin that belonged to Auntie Flo.

They thought they'd go to Paris for a quiet honeymoon,
For no one is surprised there when they see young couples spoon.
They got aboard the steamer in a happy frame of mind,
When Ermintrude said, "Stop that boat! I've left something behind!"
It's the little pudding basin that belonged to Auntie Flo.
The boat began to rock and all the sailors said, "Heave ho!"
Then Ermintrude cried, "Steward!" and he came up from below
With the little pudding basin that belonged to Auntie Flo.

They've settled down at Brixton, but a flat was hard to find.
At last they got a bedroom-parlour-kitchen all combined.
They bought some lovely furniture, gave two pounds for the lot,
And standing on the dresser is the nicest thing they've got.
It's the little pudding basin that belonged to Auntie Flo.
They've ev'rything for comfort there, or very nearly so.
They haven't got a bathroom, but they don't mind that, you know,
For they use the pudding basin that belonged to Auntie Flo.
