Marilyn Monroe Lyrics

    Mrs Johnstone
    Once I had a husband
    You know the sort of chap,
    I met him at a dance
    And how he came on with the chat

    Teddy boy
    Ya dancin'. I think you're a bleedin' cracker.

    Mrs Johnstone
    He said my eyes were deep blue pools
    My skin as soft as snow

    Teddy boy

    Mrs Johnstone
    He told me I was sexier than Marilyn Monroe
    And we went dancing
    We went dancing.

    Then, of course, I found
    That I was six weeks overdue.

    Teddy boy
    Ya what !??

    Mrs Johnstone
    We got married at the registry
    An' then we had a ‘do’.

    Bring on the bevvies.

    Mrs Johnstone
    We all had curly salmon sandwiches
    An' how the ale did flow.


    Mrs Johnstone
    They said the bride was lovelier than Marilyn Monroe

    And we went dancing,
    Yes, we went dancing.

    Mrs Johnstone
    Then the baby came along
    We called him

    Teddy Boy
    Darren Wayne.

    Mrs Johnstone
    Then three months on I found that I was in the club again.

    Teddy boy
    I married a bleedin' rabbit.

    Mrs Johnstone
    An' though I still fancied dancing
    My husband wouldn't go.

    Teddy boy
    Get lost will ya!

    Mrs Johnstone
    With a wife he said was twice the size of Marilyn Monroe

    No more dancing
    No more dancing.

    By the time I was twenty-five
    I looked like forty-two.
    With seven hungry mouths to feed
    And one more nearly due

    Me husband, he walked out on me
    A month or two ago

    Teddy boy

    Mrs Johnstone
    For a girl they say who looks a bit like Marilyn Monroe

    And they go dancing
    They go dancing

    Yes, they go dancing
    They go dancing.
