Where is Isabella with the lissom hips?
Where is Isabella with the silky thighs?
My Isabella with the hello lips,
Isabella with the goodbye eyes?

When I went round to sing my little songs to Isabella
My love, the Jezebel, was sat there listening to Bach.
A right silly pillock I looked with my old guitar, so help me,
A right soft pillock I looked with my old guitar.

When I went round with fish and chips to eat with Isabella
My love, the Jezebel, was sat there stuffing caviare.
A right silly pillock I looked with my cod and chips, so help me,
A right soft pillock I looked with one of each twice.

A bicycle I bought as a Christmas box for Isabella
But my love, the Jezebel, had got herself a motor car.
A right silly pillock I looked with a lady's bike, so help me,
A right soft pillock I looked with a lady's bike.

When I went round hot-foot to keep a date with Isabella,
I found her with her arms around the swine who brings the coal.
A right silly pillock I looked, with a little rosy posy,
A right soft pillock I looked in a pin-stripe suit.

When I went round to batter out the brains of Isabella,
My love, the Jezebel, had caught a cold and passed away.
And a right silly pillock I looked with a little cosh, so help me,
A right soft pillock I looked with a little cosh.
