Gracie Fields - I Took My Harp To A Party Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Christmas is comin', Christmas is comin'
  • Christmas is comin' again
  • But that never thrills me, the thought of it chills me
  • I tell you it fills me with pain
  • It makes me remember a Christmas gone by
  • When I was extremely upset
  • A night in December, an evening that I
  • Would very much rather forget
  • For I took me harp to a party but nobody asked me to play
  • The others were jolly and 'earty but I wasn't feelin' so gay
  • They might have said play us a tune we can sing
  • But somehow I don't think they noticed the thing
  • I took me harp to a party but nobody asked me to play
  • So I took the darned thing away
  • They asked Mrs Morgan to play her mouth-organ
  • And somebody else did a dance
  • They Let Mrs Carter perform a sonata
  • But I wasn't given a chance
  • A north country person called Sandy McPherson
  • Played bagpipes and took off his coat
  • While both the Miss Fawcetts bust out of their corsets
  • In trying to take a top note
  • But I took me harp to a party, nobody asked me to play
  • The others were jolly and 'earty but I wasn't feelin' so gay
  • I felt so ashamed at not strikin' a note
  • That I tried to hide the thing under me coat
  • I took me harp to a party but nobody asked me to play
  • So I took the darned thing away
  • They sang Home Sweet Home and The Banks of Loch Lomond
  • And All the King's Horses, then Trees
  • While nephews and nieces kept playin' their pieces
  • And spreadin' their jam on the keys
  • A daughter called Lena, played her concertina
  • We all played ridiculous games
  • 'Til old Mr Dyer, set his whiskers on fire
  • And a fire engine played on the flames
  • But I took me harp to a party but nobody asked me to play
  • So I took the darned thing away!-acap
