What Noise Annoys an Oyster?

I hope you'll indulge me for this one. I recently went to a sea shanty festival and the couple featured in the LO were singing this tune. It amused me so much that I had to find the lyrics and scrap them. It was published in 1921 and might be one of the last music hall comedy songs. Hope you can find time to read the words and perhaps have a go at saying the chorus - it really tests one's diction!

hahahaha! You're right - the chorus does test one's diction! I LOVE it! Wish I knew how it went so I could really sing it! Fabulous! Fabulous! They look as if they could really belt it out! Wonderful layout!

How fun! Don't know the real tune, but I've got one going in my head --- especially, "but a noisy noise annoys an oyster more!" Great LO.

What a fabulous layout! I actually know this song, I had a teacher in school that had us sing it in choir if you can believe it. Your layout suits it so incredibly well. TFS!!!
