MIDI File

Soloist: While passing through the busy streets of busy London town,
You all have seen the poster of the Black Bull and the Brown,
They both look most unhappy with their eyes so large and sad,
That you feel their story's painful, though you never guess how bad,
Till you read the legend overhead in simple bullock lore,
Says Mister Black to Mister Brown, I hear they want some more.
I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
Our brothers and our cousins, they've had 'em by the score,
Our sisters and our aunties and our dear mammas-in-law,
The latter we don't care about but I hear they want some more.
Chorus: I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
Our brothers and our cousins, they've had 'em by the score,
Our sisters and our aunties and our dear mammas-in-law,
The latter we don't care about but I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
   
Soloist: I know a certain boarding house not far from Russell Square,
The neighbourhood is charming with extremely bracing air,
The terms are one one weekly that's inclusive board and bed,
And a guinea's not expensive to be warmed and housed and fed.
But when the dinner's cleared away, I'm told the boarders roar,
For a tough old hen won't nourish ten, and I hear they want some more.
I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
They've ping-pong in the dining room but precious little more,
And boarders come and boarders go though ne'er returning more,
But from the "Daily Mail" today, I hear they want some more.
Chorus: I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
They've ping-pong in the dining room but precious little more,
And boarders come and boarders go though ne'er returning more,
But from the "Daily Mail" today, I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
   
Soloist: Two ladies went out shopping just a day or two ago,
To get the latest thing in hats and some dainty "so and so",
With the "so and so" they both were charmed, but the cov'ring for the head
Was a matter for anxiety whether black or brown or red.
They tried them on by dozens; hats were piled upon the floor.
They haven't quite decided yet, and I hear they want some more.
I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
The damsels who were serving them fell fainting on the floor,
From windows and from cupboards of that millinery store,
They tried on five and forty, and I hear they want some more.
Chorus: I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
The damsels who were serving them fell fainting on the floor,
From windows and from cupboards of that millinery store,
They tried on five and forty, and I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
   
Soloist: When you go to merry Margate by the London Chatham line,
You leave Victoria at two, arriving after nine.
You take a first-class ticket to be thoroughly at ease,
And you find they cram in ten a side, with babies on their knees.
The result is not too pleasant in a carriage built for four,
And from casual remarks let drop, I hear they want some more.
I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
As relics we respect 'em but Directors we implore,
If you're not able to keep time, you needn't make us sore.
Break up those old decayed machines, Buck up and get some more.
Chorus: I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
As relics we respect 'em but Directors we implore,
If you're not able to keep time, you needn't make us sore.
Break up those old decayed machines, Buck up and get some more,
Buck up and get some more.
   
Soloist: Have you ever seen two women kiss each other when they meet?
Such waste of good material it's difficult to beat.
They neither of them like it and at best they're only pecks,
And more often when they're kissing they could wring each other's necks,
But if a man suggests a kiss, they don't find them a bore,
And when they've had a dozen or two, I hear they want some more.
I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
The change is quite delightful from those they've had before,
The female kisses nose and chin, or the neck she will explore.
With men the lips are good enough and I hear they want some more.
Chorus: I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
The change is quite delightful from those they've had before,
The female kisses nose and chin, or the neck she will explore.
With men the lips are good enough and I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
   
Soloist: The Daily Paper to a man gives life an added zest,
But Foreign news and politics leave women unimpressed.
The Fashionable Wedding news will hold them at a glance,
And they squeeze a little int'rest out of Lady Sybil's dance,
But a scandal in Society is what they just adore,
And when they've read the details twice, I hear they want some more.
I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
The spicy little morsels go so well with tea at four,
They say it's simply scandalous and the evidence deplore,
They also say it's shocking but I hear they want some more.
Chorus: I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
The spicy little morsels go so well with tea at four,
They say it's simply scandalous and the evidence deplore,
They also say it's shocking but I hear they want some more,
I hear they want some more.
