Lean and Unwashed Tiffey

Written by Cyril Tawney (c) 1954

I’m a lean and unwashed tiffy

I come up from Plymouth Town

I can fix it in a jiffy

If you’ll hand that spanner down

If you’ll hand – that spanner down.

Portland girls are raving beauties

‘Specially in the summer time

They make you curse these week-end duties

Making love to grease and grime

Making love – to grease and grime.

I kissed her standing, kissed her lying,

And I called her “turtle-dove”

If she’d had wings I’d have kissed her flying

That’s the way I won my love

That’s the way – I won my love.

She left me for a wardroom chappie

She said “He’s the better man”

He needs wine to keep her happy;

All I drink is Black-and-Tan

All I drink – is Black-and-Tan
