Lyrics: 

There is a happy land where only children live
They don’t have the time to learn the ways
Of you sir, Mr. Grownup

There’s a special place in the rhubarb fields underneath the leaves
It’s a secret place and adults aren’t allowed there, Mr. Grownup
Go away, sir

Charlie Brown's got half a crown, he’s gonna buy a kite
Jimmy’s ill with chicken pox, and Tommy’s learned to ride his bike
Tiny Tim sings prayers and hymns, he’s so small we don’t notice him
He gets in the way but we always let him play with us
Mother calls, but we don’t hear
There’s lots more things to do
It’s only 5 o’clock, and we’re not tired yet
But we will be, very shortly

Sissy Steven plays with girls, someone made him cry
Tony climbed a tree and fell, trying hard to touch the sky
Tommy lit a fire one day, nearly burned the field away
Tommy’s mum found out, but he put the blame on me and Ray

There is a happy land where only children live
You’ve had your chance and now the doors are closed sir, Mr. Grownup
Go away, sir

Boo, de boo, de boo, de boo dup <repeat>

Lyrics: 

Just look through your window, look who sits outside
Little me is waiting, standing through the night
When you walk out through your door I’ll wave my flag and shout

Ohh, beautiful baby
My burning desire started on Sunday
Give me your heart and I’ll love you till Tuesday

Da da da dum (x4)

Who’s that hiding in the apple tree, clinging to a branch
Don’t be afraid it’s only me, hoping for a little romance
If you lie beneath my shade, I’ll keep you nice and cool
Ohh, beautiful baby
I was very lonely till I met you on Sunday
My passion’s never-ending and I’ll love you till Tuesday

Da da da dum (x7)

Let the wind blow through your hair, be nice to the big blue sea
Don’t be afraid of the man in the moon, because it’s only me
I shall always watch you until my love runs dry

Ohh, beautiful baby
My heart’s aflame, I’ll love you till Tuesday
My head’s in a whirl and I’ll love you till Tuesday
Love, love, love, love, love you till Tuesday
Love, love, love, love, love you till Tuesday

Da da da dum (x11)

Well, I might stretch it till Wednesday

Lyrics: 

Rubber Band
There’s a rubber band that plays tunes out of tune
In the library garden Sunday afternoon
While a little chappie waves a golden wand

Rubber Band
In 1910 I was so handsome and so strong
My moustache was stiffly waxed and one foot long
And I loved a girl while you played teatime tunes

Dear Rubber Band, you’re playing my tune out of tune, oh

Rubber Band
Won’t you play a haunting theme again to me
While I eat my scones and drink my cup of tea
The sun is warm but it’s a lonely afternoon

Oh, play that theme

Rubber Band
How I wish that I could join your Rubber Band
We could play in lively parks throughout the land
And one Sunday afternoon, I’d find my love
Rubber Band,
In the ‘14- '18 war I went to sea
Thought my Sunday love was waiting home for me
And now she’s married to the leader of your band, oh

(spoken)
Oh sob... I hope you break your baton

Sell Me A Coat

Lyrics: 

La la la la la la, la la la la la la la

A winter’s day, a bitter snowflake on my face
My summer girl takes little backward steps away
Jack Frost took her hand and left me, Jack Frost ain’t so cool

CHORUS
Sell me a coat with buttons of silver
Sell me a coat that’s red or gold
Sell me a coat with little patch pockets
Sell me a coat ‘cause I feel cold

And when she smiles, the ice forgets to melt away
Not like before, her smile was warming yesterday
See the trees like silver candy, feel my icy hand

CHORUS

See my eyes, my window pane
See my tears like gentle rain
That's the memory of a summer day

CHORUS (twice)

La la la la la la (repeat)

Uncle Arthur

Lyrics: 

Strikes the bell for 5 o’clock, Uncle Arthur closes shop
Screws the tops on all the bottles, turns the lights out, locks it up
Climbs across his bike and he’s away
Cycles past the gasworks, past the river, down the high street
Back to mother, it’s another empty day

Uncle Arthur likes his mommy
Uncle Arthur still reads comics
Uncle Arthur follows Batman

Round and round the rumours fly, how he ran away from Mum
On his 32nd birthday, told her that he’d found a chum
Mother cried and raved and yelled and fussed
Arthur left her no illusion, brought the girl round, save confusion
Sally was the real thing, not just lust

Uncle Arthur vanished quickly
Uncle Arthur and his new bride
Uncle Arthur follows Sally

Round and round goes Arthur’s head, hasn’t eaten well for days
Little Sally may be lovely, but cooking leaves her in a maze
Uncle Arthur packed his bags and fled
ack to mother, all’s forgiven, serving in the family shop
He gets his pocket money, he’s well fed

Uncle Arthur past the gasworks
Uncle Arthur past the river
Uncle Arthur down the high street
Uncle Arthur follows mother
