The Lean and Unwashed Tiffy (Cyril Tawney) I'm a lean and unwashed tiffy I come up from Plymouth Town I can fix it in a jiffy If you'll hand that spanner down If you'll hand - that spanner down. Portland girls are raving beauties 'Specially in the summer time They make you curse these week-end duties Making love to grease and grime Making love - to grease and grime. I kissed her standing, kissed her lying, And I called her "turtle-dove" If she'd had wings I'd have kissed her flying That's the way I won my love That's the way - I won my love. She left me for a wardroom chappie She said "He's the better man" He needs wine to keep her happy; All I drink is Black-and-Tan All I drink - is Black-and-Tan. Copyright Folk Directions RG
