Leaning On a Lamp Post Lyrics

Leaning On a Lamp Post - George Formby/The Song Spinners

I'm leaning on a lamp

Maybe you think I look a tramp

Or you may think

I'm hanging 'round to steal a motor-car

 

But no I'm not a crook

And if you think that's what I look

I'll tell you why I'm here and what my motives are

 

I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street

In case a certain little lady comes by

Oh me oh my I hope the little lady comes by

I don't know

If she'll get away she doesn't always get away

But anyhow I know that she'll try

Oh me oh my I hope the little lady comes by

There's no other girl I would wait for

But this one I'd break any date for

I won't have to ask what she's late for

She wouldn't have to leave me flat

She's not a girl like that

Oh she's absolutely wonderful

And marvellous and beautiful

And anyone can understand why

I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street

In case a certain little lady passes by

I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street

In case a certain little lady comes by

Oh me oh my I hope the little lady goes by

I don't know

If she'll get away she doesn't always get away

But anyhow I know that she'll try

Oh me oh my

I hope the little lady go do do do didi dodo dada

There's no other girl I would wait for

But this one I'd break any date for

I won't have to ask what she's late for

She wouldn't have to leave me flat

She's not a girl like that

Oh she's absolutely wonderful

And marvellous and beautiful

And anyone can understand why

I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street

 

In case a certain little lady passes by
