Charlie Chaplin And the moon shines bright on Charlie Chaplin His boots are cracking for t' want of blacking And his old fusty coat is wanting mending Until they send him to the Dardanelles Charlie Chaplin, meek and mild, swiped a sausage from a child When the child began to cry, Charlie socked him in the eye Charlie Chaplin had no sense, he bought a fiddle for eighteen pence And the only tune that he could play was Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay Charlie Chaplin went to France to teach the ladies how to dance First your heel and then your toe; lift up your skirts and 'round you go Charlie, Charlie, chook, chook, chook, went to bed with three white ducks One died, Charlie cried, Charlie, Charlie, chook, chook, chook One, two, three, O'leary, I saw my Auntie Sary Standing in the door, O'leary, kissing Charlie Chaplin From the Oldham Tinkers, to the tune of Redwing, with an oddball minor part in between the verses sometimes.JN JN
