Quite English, You Know

Quite English,You Know

What queer things we see and what queer things we do,
That’s English, you know, quite English, you know,
And now it’s the rage, and ’tis something quite new,
It’s English, quite English, you know.
We’re out of the fashion, unless we’re agreed
To follow wherever they lead,
To dress just as they do, to look as they do,
It’s English, quite English, you know.

They sent us an actor to show us the way,
That’s English, you know, quite English, you know;
He showed us his manner of playing a play,
It’s English, quite English, you know.
We studied his walk and copied his dress,
We puffed him well up in the press,
Some said he was trash, but he gobbled our cash,
It’s English, quite English, you know.

They sent us a boxer from over the sea,
That’s English, you know, quite English, you know,
He came just to visit this land of the free,
It’s English, quite English, you know.
He played the drop game when at Madison Square,
And this with a heart free of care,
He managed to join on with hard Yankee coin,
It’s English, quite English, you know.
