Subject: Lyr Add: GRANNY'S LITTLE OLD SKIN RUG (G Fields)
From: Jim Dixon

You can hear this recording at Bill Hanks' web site. Here's my transcription:


GRANNY'S LITTLE OLD SKIN RUG
Words and music by Gifford & Cliffe
As sung by Gracie Fields, 1931

We've got a fam'ly heirloom.
We found it in the spare room.
It's such a lovely heirloom,
Granny's little old skin rug.
It's badly worn,
Ripped an' torn.
Still it looks a treat.
Besides, you 'ardly see it once it's under Father's feet.

What makes our fireside look so swell?
Granny's little old skin rug.
It once was white till the soot all fell
On Granny's little old skin rug.
To our tripe suppers friends come round.
Last night Ma eat out(?) a pound,
An' mixed up with the tripe we found
Granny's little old skin rug.
In Rochdale, when the king's about,
"'Ang out your bunting!" they all shout.
We've got no flag so we just 'ang out
Granny's little old skin rug.

We shouldn't like to lose it.
For a puddin' cloth we use it,
An' Baby sits an' chews it,
Granny's little old skin rug.
It's past repair, quite threadbare,
An' when it's worn away,
We'll nail a brass plate on the flooer just where it used to lay.

What makes our fireside look so swell?
Granny's little old skin rug.
We always call it the moth 'otel,
Granny's little old skin rug.
Our Thomas cat 'e looks a sight,
Lost 'is foot, but 'e's all right.
We found 'im on the tails(?) last night
In Granny's little old skin rug.

What makes our fireside look so swell?
[tacit]
Besides the skin there's some 'air as well.
[tacit]
When Uncle smokes we lose our friends.
Cash on shag 'e never spends.
'E fills 'is pipe with all the ends
Of Granny's little old skin rug.

Mother can't buy clothes, poor soul,
'Cause our father's on the dole,
But she's made a nice warm camisole
Out of Granny's little old skin rug.
When Gandhi's 'ere 'e must take care.
'E can't walk out with 'is loins all bare,
So 'e's decided 'e will wear
Granny's little old skin rug.
