Deaf School St Albans shield, small

Come on Archie!

(Langer/Allen)

No Show Arthur, known as Archie

Life and soul of every party

Reluctant though he was to go

Once he got there you would know

Guitar, banjo, ukulele

Man he made the party swing

Babycham and brown ale baby

Then you should have heard him sing

"He's as good as Frank Sinatra"

"Better!" Some are heard to say

Archie does them all and then some

Maybe Sammy, Mel Torme

"Next week same again round our house!

Get the piano tuned OK!"

No Show rashly makes a promise

Will he be there, hard to say

 

No Show Archie, Come on Archie, Go Go Archie!

No excuses, not today!

No Show Archie, Come On Archie, Go Go Archie!

Will he be there? Who’s to say

 

Archie hammers out the classics

In the parlor there's a squeeze

Shouts for ‘Hearts In San Francisco’

Even Music Maestro Please!

Going home time, now he's shouting

"Lets do this again next week!"

She knows better. "Don't expect him,

That’s a promise he won't keep"

 

No Show Archie, Come On Archie, Go Go Archie!

Will he be there? Hard to say

Come on Archie! Go Go Archie! Come On Archie!

Will he be there? Hard to say

 

Come On Archie! Come On Archie! Go Go Archie

"Archie’s granddad ’s had his leg off

That’s the second one today"

Can he be there? It’s a promise!

He won’t make it. Not today!

Come on Archie! No Show Archie! Showbiz Archie!

Will he be there? Who’s to say

Come on Archie! Come on Archie! Come on Archie!

 

"Good show, Archie!"
