Why don't you get back into bed
Why don't you get back into bed
Why don't you get back into bed
Why don't you get back into bed...

Reasons to be cheerful part 3
1 2 3

Summer, Buddy Holly, the working folly
Good golly Miss Molly and boats

Hammersmith Palais, the Bolshoi Ballet
Jump back in the alley and nanny goats

18 wheeler Scammels, dominica camels
All other mammals plus equal votes

Seeing Piccadilly, Fanny sniffin' Willie
Being rather silly and porridge oats

A bit of grin and bear it, a bit of come and share it
Your welcome we can spare it, yellow socks

Too short to be haughty, too nutty to be naughty
Going on forty no electric shocks

The juice of a carrot, the smile of a parrot
A little drop of claret, anything that rocks

Elvis and Scotty, the days when I ain't spotty
Sitting on a potty, curing smallpox

Reasons to be cheerful part 3
Reasons to be cheerful part 3
Reasons to be cheerful part 3
Reasons to be cheerful - 1 2 3

Reasons to be cheerful part 3

Health service glasses, gigolos and brasses
Round or skinny bottoms

Take your mum to Paris, lighting up a chalice
Wee Willie Harris

Bantu Steven Biko, listening to Reko
Harpo Groucho Chico

Cheddar cheese and pickle, a Vincent motorcycle
Slap and tickle

Woody Allan, Dali, Domitrie and Pascale
Balla balla balla and Volare

Something nice to study, phoning up a buddy
Being in my nuddy

Saying okeydokey, sing-a-long a Smokie
Coming out a chokie

John Coltrane's soprano, Adie Celentano
Beuno Colino

Reasons to be cheerful part 3
Reasons to be cheerful part 3
Reasons to be cheerful part 3
Reasons to be cheerful - 1 2 3

Yes, yes – dear, dear
Perhaps next year
Or maybe even never
In which case

Woody Allan, Dali, Domitrie and Pascale
Balla balla balla and Volare

Something nice to study, phoning up a buddy
Being in my nuddy

Saying okeydokey, sing-a-long a Smokie
Coming out a chokie

John Coltrane's soprano, Adie Celentano
Beuno Colino

Reasons to be cheerful part 3
Reasons to be cheerful part 3
Reasons to be cheerful part 3
Reasons to be cheerful 1, 2, 3
