Box.

My hand upon it, join but yours;
Agree the house will hold us.


Cox.
And two good lodgers Bouncer gets,
He'll in his arms enfold us.

Bouncer:

Oh! yes! yes! to arms,
And war's alarms.
(to BOX) You remember of course,
(to COX) You remember of course,
When I mounted a horse in Her Majesty's force,
As one of the yeomen
Who'd cope with the foemen,
For then an invasion
Threatened the nation,


Cox and Box.
And there's no occasion to sing

All Three.
Box (Frederick Sinden), Bouncer (George Cook) and Cox (John Reed)
Finale

Rataplan, Rataplan, Rataplan, Rataplan,
Rataplan, Rataplan, plan, plan, plan, plan, plan, plan,
For Rataplan, Penelope Ann
Has married another respectable man,
Three cheers for Knox, who lives at the docks,
And may he live happily if he can.

Rataplan, Rataplan, Rataplan, Rataplan,
Rataplan, Rataplan, plan, plan, plan, plan, plan, plan,
For Rataplan, Penelope Ann
Has married another respectable man,
Three cheers for Knox, who lives at the docks,
And may he live happily if he can.

Rataplan, Rataplan, etc.
