Now I go cleanin' windows to earn an honest bob

A window cleaner you would be
When I'm cleanin' windows
Honeymoonin' couples too
You'd be surprised at things they do

But I'll never stop
Till I get right to the top
The blushin' bride, she looks divine
I'd rather have his job than mine

It's a wonder I don't fall
When I'm cleanin' windows
I know a fella, such a swell
I've seen him drink his bath as well

But I'll never stop
Till I get right to the top
Pyjamas lyin' side by side
I've often seen what goes inside

She looks a flapper on the screen
When I'm cleanin' windows
She pulls her hair all down behind
And after that pulls down the blind

But I'll never stop
Till I get right to the top
An old maid walks around the floor
She'll drag me in and lock the door
