Let's All Go Down the Strand


[Return to Music Hall Songs]

 
One night a half 'a dozen tourists
Spent the night together in Trafalgar Square.

A fortnight's tour on the Continent was planned,
And each had his portmanteau in his hand.
Down the Rhine they meant to have a picnic

Til' Jones said, "I must decline--"

"Boys you'll be advised by me
to stay away from Germany--
What's the good a' going down the Rhine."
Let's all go down the Strand -- Have a banana!
Let's all go down the Strand!
I'll be the leader, you can march behind.
Come with me and see what we can find!
Let's all go down the Strand -- Have a banana!
Oh! What a happy land.

That's the place fer fun and noise,
All among the girls and boys.
So let's all go down to the Strand.
