Liverpool Lullaby

  • (Trad / Stan Kell)

    Oh you are a mucky kid
    Dirty as a dustbin lid
    When he hears the things you did
    You'll get a belt from your dad
    Oh you have your father's nose
    So crimson in the dark it glows
    If you're not asleep when the boozers close
    You'll get a belt from your dad

    You look so scruffy lying there
    Strawberry jam tats in your 'air
    Oh in this world you've not a care
    And I have got so many
    It isn't easy every day
    Living on your father's pay
    The bugger drinks it all away
    And leaves me without any

    But though you have no silver spoon
    Better days are coming soon
    'Cause Nelly's working at the loon
    And she gets paid on Friday
    One day we will make a splash -
    If Littlewoods supply the cash
    We'll buy an 'ouse in Nottingash
    And get your dad a brewery

    Oh you are a mucky kid
    Dirty as a dustbin lid
    When he hears the things you did
    You'll get a belt from your dad
    Oh you have your father's face
    You're growing up a real 'ard case
    But there's no one else can take your place
    Go fast asleep for your mummy

    (as sung by The Spinners)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [2000:] [Littlewoods,] Britain's biggest privately owned business has its origins in the country's first football pools operation, founded by the late Sir John Moores in 1923. Nine years later, with his brother Cecil, he launched the first Littlewoods catalogue using the football pools' vast mailing list. In 1937 the first Littlewoods department stores opened in Blackpool.
