When you come to Bernie's
You might think you're in Heaven!

Didn't know I had an Uncle Frank
I've never met him, have I?
Look there, Mu, a cage full of budgies
Swimming pool and donkey rides all free!
It's all free!

Here we have the winner, folks
Have you ever see a lovlier pair?

What a shapely ankle
What a perfect shin
If you could feel this silken thigh
You'd know who has to win
 
If you could feel this silken thigh
F#(w/Rhy Fig 1)
You'd know.....
 
(Nora)
You don't know how much I've missed

To feel a man again, to dance, to kiss

Your eyes reveal you're lonely

this evening must pass slowly
Until we're one my heart won't rest
Will Tommy share our happiness?

To feel a man again, to dance, to kiss

Of course he will, I'll make him smile
I'll take him out to cinemas and fairs

Football and Cricket
There'll never be a happier lad
I'll be more than an Uncle
I'll be just like a Dad

I will be a greencoat, too
and when I'm big I'll own a holiday camp

I love him even more
