George Formby the master lyricist:

North or South, when I open my mouth, they know that I’m not Dutch,
They can tell I come from Lancashire, but they can’t tell me much.
I whispered, "I’ll be nudist if you’ll be the same my dear."
She said, "No fear, with a Lad from Lancashire.

Got tickets to a Formby tribute gig last Christmas, travelled up to Manchester for it and stayed for the weekend it but worth it was well worth the effort!

"Honeymooning couples too, you should see them bill and coo.
You'd be surprised at things they do
When I'm cleaning windows."

"The blushing bride she looks divine,
The bridegroom he is doing fine,
I'd rather have his job than mine,
When I'm cleaning windows."

George was a favourite when I was little.
