With My Little Stick Of Blackpool Rock

Album: Golden Greats (1937)
  • Every year when summer comes round, off to the sea I go.
    I don't care if I do spend a pound, I'm rather rash I know.
    See me dressed like all the sports, in my blazer and a pair of shorts.
    With my little stick of Blackpool Rock, along the promenade I stroll.
    It may be sticky but I never complain, it's nice to have a nibble at it now and again
    Every day wherever I stray the kids all round me flock.

    One afternoon the band conductor up on his stand
    Somehow lost his baton - it flew out of his hand
    So I jumped in his place and then conducted the band
    With my little stick of Blackpool Rock

    With my little stick of Blackpool Rock, along the promenade I stroll,
    In my pocket it got stuck I could tell
    ‘Cos when I pulled it out I pulled my shirt off as well
    Every day wherever I stray the kids all round me flock.

    A girl while bathing clung to me, my wits had to use
    She cried, "I'm drowning, and to save me, you won't refuse"
    I said, "Well if you're drowning then I don't want to lose
    My little stick of Blackpool Rock."

    With my little stick of Blackpool Rock, along the promenade I stroll
    In the ballroom I went dancing each night
    No wonder every girl that danced with me, stuck to me tight
    Every day wherever I stray the kids all round me flock.

    A fellow took my photograph it cost one and three.
    I said when it was done, "Is that supposed to be me?"
    "You've properly mucked it up the only thing I can see is
    My little stick of Blackpool Rock."
