I Belong to Glasgow (1927)
(wm) Will Fyffe (I) in Music Hall by Will Fyffe. (RR) Eartha Kitt; Danny Kaye; Kirk Douglas
Verse 1: I’ve been wi’ a couple o’ cronies,
One or two pals o’ my ain;
We went in a hotel, and we did very well,
And then we came out once again;
Then we went into anither,
And that is the reason I’m fu’;
We had six deoch-an-doruses, then sang a chorus,
Just listen, I’ll sing it to you:

Chorus: I belong to Glasgow,
Dear old Glasgow town;
But there’s something the matter wi’ Glasgow,
For it’s goin’ roun’ and roun’!
I’m only a common old working chap,
As anyone can see,
But when I get a couple o’ drinks on a Saturday,
Glasgow belongs to me!

verse 2: There’s nothing in keeping your money,
And saving a shilling or two;
If your money you spend, then you’ve nothing to lend,
And that’s all the better for you!
There nae harm in taking a droppie,
It ends all your trouble and strife;
It gives ye the feeling that when you wind home,
You don’t care a hang for the wife!
[Repeat Chorus]
