English Lido Lyrics

1928 Broadway
This Year of Grace the Musical - English Lido Lyrics

Music and lyrics by Noël Coward.

Hurray, hurray, hurray
l The holidays
l The jolly days
When laughter, fun and folly days Appear
Hurray, hurray, hurray!
The laity
With gaiety
And charming spontaneity
Must cheer.

I've left my bowler hat and rubber collar far behind.
I wish to God you'd left that awful Panama behind,
It looks gaga behind.

But never mind
Because the holidays are here,
Our tastes are very far from Oriental,
We have a very fixed idea of fun,
The thought of anything experimental
Or Continental We shun.

We take to innovations very badly,
We'd rather be uncomfortable than not,
In fighting any new suggestion madly
We'd gladly Be shot!

We much prefer to take our pleasures sadly
Because we're thoroughly contented with our lot.
