[To Mike Geary, il miglior fabbro]

When Lil's husband got demobbed, me said— Me didn't mince me words, me said to she meself, HURRY UP PLEASE IT'S TIME Now Albert's coming back, make yourself a bit smart. Him’ll want to know what you done with that money him gave you To get yourself some teeth. Him did, me was there. You have them all out, Lil, and get a nice set, Him said, me swear, me can't bear to look at you. And no more can't me, me said, and think of poor Albert, Him’s been in the army four years, him wants a good time, And if you don't give it he, there's others will, me said. Oh is there, her said. Something o' that, me said. Then me’ll know who to thank, her said, and give I a straight look. HURRY UP PLEASE IT'S TIME If you don't like it you can get on with it, me said. Others can pick and choose if you can't. But if Albert makes off, it won't be for lack of telling. You ought to be ashamed, me said, to look so antique. (And she only thirty-one.) Me can't help it, her said, pulling a long face, It's them pills me took, to bring it off, her said. (Her’s had five already, and nearly died of young George.) The chemist said it would be alright, but me’ve never been the same. You are a proper fool, me said. Well, if Albert won't leave you alone, there it is, me said, What you get married for if you don't want children? HURRY UP PLEASE IT'S TIME 165
Well, that Sunday Albert was home, they had a hot gammon, And they asked I in to dinner, to get the beauty of it hot— HURRY UP PLEASE IT'S TIME HURRY UP PLEASE IT'S TIME Goonight Bill. Goonight Lou. Goonight May. Goonight. Ta ta. Goonight. Goonight. Good night, ladies, good night, sweet ladies, good night, good night.
