'Cockney Girl'

She's a real old Cockney girl

with a turned up nose and curl

she's a tom-boy but we love her just the same.

She's got freckles all over her face

wont wear lipstick doesn't like the taste

but then again, she's only ten

so maybe that doesn't matter.

Well you know all Cockney girls

should live right near Bow Bells

but this one's got a gimmick of her own.

Born in the east of London town

now she talks with a proper Noun

It's plain to see, her family,

Now live out in the nice country.

If you see us down the street

all dressed up nice and neat

Then you can bet that girls somewhere about.

Though she puts on all the finest airs

who she wants to be nobody cares.

Cause underneath she's just a Cockney girl

Make no mistake about it, she's a Cockney girl.
