Handbags and Gladrags Lyrics

Handbags and Gladrags - Studio Players

Ever seen a blind man cross the road

 

Trying to make the other side

 

Ever seen a young girl growing old

 

Trying to make herself a bride

 

So what becomes of you my love

 

When they have finally stripped you of

 

The handbags and the gladrags

 

That your poor old granddad

 

Had to sweat to buy you

 

Once I was a young man

 

And all I thought I had to do was smile

 

You are still a young girl

 

You've borne everything in style

 

So once you think you're in you're out

 

'Cause you don't mean a single thing without

 

The handbags and the gladrags

 

That your poor old granddad

 

Had to sweat to buy you

 

Sing a song of six-pence for your sake

 

Drink a bottle full of rye

 

Four and twenty blackbirds in a cake

 

Bake 'em all in a pie

 

They told me you missed school today

 

So what I suggest you just throw them all away

 

The handbags and the gladrags

 

That your poor old granddad

 

Had to sweat to buy

 

They told me you missed school today

 

So what I suggest you just throw them all away

 

The handbags and the gladrags

 

That your poor old granddad

 

Had to sweat to buy you
