Harry Was A Champion

Band songlist


Also known as Treacle (Chas & Dave cover)


Now academicals thought music halls
Weren't quite the proper thing
But it's commonly known
People don't like a song
That everyone can sing

But Rudyard Kipling made 'em think
When he come out with a quotation
He said, Music halls are a necessary part
Of our civilization

But Harry was a champion in their eyes
With his own green tie on
When he sung about hot meat pies
And any, any, any old iron
He was king of them all
And the music hall
And down at the Old Britannia

Singin', stick a little treacle on me puddin',
And you can't help laughing, can ya?
