No. 7 - Song - Tommy and Chorus

MIDI file

Tommy: I am a smart little sort of a chap,
Very obliging and active.
Notice my uniform, buttons and cap,
Neat, but extremely attractive;
Though rather small, you will find that I know
Plenty of dodges and wrinkles,
All over London I rush to and fro,
Now matter where, I am ready to go
Soon as the telephone tinkles.
I'm the Messenger Boy
With my jaunty air and my cheeky stare;
I'm the lad you ought to employ,
Quite a model Messenger Boy!
Chorus: He's the Messenger Boy
With his jaunty air and his cheeky stare;
He's the lad we ought to employ,
So ring the bell for the Messenger Boy!
   
Tommy: When you entrust any note to my care
I will look after its carriage,
Whether it's only some business affair
Or a proposal of marriage;
If you are staying in town rather late
When there's a wife you should fly to,
I'll go and tell her she isn't to wait,
Charging you what is the usual rate,
Bringing you back a reply too!
I'm the Messenger Boy
With my jaunty air and my cheeky stare;
I'm the lad you ought to employ,
Quite a model Messenger Boy!
Chorus: He's the Messenger Boy
With his jaunty air and his cheeky stare;
He's the lad we ought to employ,
So ring the bell for the Messenger Boy!
   
Tommy: Now, as a rule, in the feminine breast
Uniform causes a flutter.
Often some nice-looking girl has expressed
Things I'm too bashful to utter;
As the remarks are intended for me,
Pardon me, please, if I swaggers;
Housemaids and cooks on the subject agree,
Soldiers, policemen and sailors at sea
Haven't a chance with a Jaggers!
I'm the Messenger Boy
With my jaunty air and my cheeky stare;
I'm the lad you ought to employ,
Quite a model Messenger Boy!
Chorus: He's the Messenger Boy
With his jaunty air and his cheeky stare;
He's the lad we ought to employ,
So ring the bell for the Messenger Boy!

He's the Messenger Boy
With his jaunty air and his cheeky stare;
He's the lad we ought to employ,
So ring the bell for the Messenger Boy!
The Messenger Boy!
