Benny Hill – Transistor Radio lyrics
My baby's got a transistor radio
She takes it everywhere we go
She takes it when we go out a-walking
Even to a movie show
Well now, just last night, in the pale moonlight
I asked her for a kiss
But instead of hearing her whisper sweet words of love
All that I could hear was this

(Radio Pinky & Perky Style)
Last night I held a little hand
it made my poor heart sing
It was the sweetest hand I'd held
Four aces and a king

I went round to the house where my baby lives
To ask her for a date
There I was, walking up the garden path
Round about half past eight
When I heard a sound, made my poor heart pound
It stopped me in my stride
I seemed to hear the voice of another guy
Coming from inside

(Radio Elvis Style)
I wonder if you?re lonesome tonight - but don't wanna call
Maybe that?s ?cause you?re eleven feet tall
And all the world?s a stage, I have often heard that said
But I don?t have a wooden heart
I have a wooden head

I?d like to take her transistor radio
And throw it in the deep blue sea
I?m so jealous of her transistor radio
?Cause it takes her mind off me
I said, Oh baby, please be mine
I want you for my own
Tell me, is your love for somebody else?
Or is it for me alone?

(Radio Presenter Style)
It's also for Ngia Gooki of British Honduras, Umbongo Appledory of New Guinea, and Fred Glockenlocker of British Hartlepool

I swore to her that I would always be true
And love her all the while
And on that oh so happy day in may
I took her down the aisle
Now, do you take this man to be your loving husband?
The preacher softly said
But he never heard you say, I do
Cause this is what he heard instead

Gabba, gabba, yeah, yeah
Gabba, gabba, yeah, yeah
You told me you were just eighteen on the telephone
I thought that you meant eighteen years
But you meant eighteen stone
Big fat mama

We went to spend our honeymoon down on the Island of Capri
I found ourselves a very small hotel as quiet as could be
But when I got up to our room upon our wedding night
This is the sound that reached my ears
As I switched out the light

Ere, where?s the radio?
Music he wants
