Have You Got A Light Boy?

Singing Postman with DucksI had a girl, real nice girl, Down in Wroxham Way;
She was wholly nice to me back in the old school days,
She would smile, all the while, but daddy didn't know all,
What she used to say to me behind the garden wall:
Have you got a light boy
Have you got a light?

Then one day she went away, I don't see her no more,
Till by chance I see her down along the Mundesly Shore.
She was there, twice as fair, would she now be true?
So when she sees me passing by she says ‘I'm glad that's you’ -
Have you got a light boy?
Have you got a light?

Molly Windley, she smokes like a chimley,
But she's my little nicotine gal.

Now you'll see her and me, nevermore to part,
We would wander hand-in-hand, together in the dark;
Then one night I held her tight, in the old backyard,
Now when I tried to hold her close she says, now hold you hard, [wait a moment]
Have you got a light boy?
Have you got a light? [Chorus]

By and by we decide on the wedding day,
So we toddles off to church to hear the preacher say:
Do you now take this vow, to honour all the time?
Before I had the chance to stop her she begins to pine:
Have you got a light boy?
Have you got a light? [Chorus]

Now the doctor tells me a daddy I will be,
So when I asked him what's the score? He says there's only three!
So here I go, cheerio, to see how she do fair,
I know what she will say to me as soon as I get there:
Have you got a light boy?
