To the tune of "Bill Bailey Will You Please Come Home"

Ed Stander sang this lovely parody to me in the mid 1980s in St John's, Newfoundland.

It went something like

"Won't you come home Disraeli ? Won't you come home .. ?
Cried the good Queen Victoria."

etc.

Anybody know the words?

Got lucky. Here ya go.


WON'T YOU COME HOME, DISRAELI?
As recorded by Allan Sherman on "My Son, the Celebrity" (1963)

When Benjamin Disraeli was Prime Minister of England,
And good old Queen Victoria was the queen,
Whenever she would need him for official palace business,
Disraeli, he was nowhere to be seen.

She went down to 10 Downing Street.
The doorbell there she rang,
And when there was no answer,
This is what the good queen sang:

Won't you come home, Disraeli? Won't you come home?
Come home to Queen Victoria.
Don't leave that House of Commons and that House of Lords.
Just sittin' waitin' for ya.
I'm gettin' awful lonesome, 'cause all I do
Is sit here reading Ethan Frome.
Now don't leave me flat,
The key to the palace is under the mat.
Disraeli, won't you please come home?

Won't you come home, Disraeli? Won't you come home?
Come home to Queen Victoria.
Don't leave that House of Commons and that House of Lords.
Just sittin' waitin' for ya.

You claim official business took you away
To Egypt, and Bombay, and Rome.
Well, I ain't so certain,
'Cause you're the nineteenth century Richard Burton,
Disraeli, won't you please (I miss you, Dizzy),
Disraeli, won't you please,
Disraeli, won't you please,
Disraeli, won't you please come home?

There's a new Allan Sherman multi-CD box set out on Rhino. It's called--what else?--"My Son the Box." I've read that it's most comprehensive. Just in time for Chanukah, too.

Won't You Come Home, Disraeli
Preamble: When Benjamin Disraeli was Prime Minister of England,
And good old Queen Victoria was the Queen,
Whenever she would need him for official palace business,
Disraeli, he was nowhere to be seen.
She went down to 10 Downing Street,
The doorbell there she rang,
And when there was no answer,
This is what the good Queen sang:


Won't you come home, Disraeli. Won't you come home.
Come home to Queen Victoria.
Don't leave that House of Commons, and that House of Lords.
Just sittin' waitin' for ya.
I'm gettin' awful lomesome, 'cause all I do
Is sit here reading Ethan Frome.




Now don't leave me flat,
The key to the palace is under the mat.
Disraeli, won't you please come home.
Won't you come home, Disraeli. Won't you come home.
Come home to Queen Victoria.
Don't leave that House of Commons, and that House of Lords.
Just sittin' waitin' for ya.
You claim official business took you away
To Egypt, and Bombay, and Rome.
Well, I ain't so certain,
'Cause you're the Nineteenth Century Richard Burton,
Disraeli, won't you please (I miss you, Dizzy)
Disraeli, won't you please,
Disraeli, won't you please,
Disraeli, won't you please come home.
