Ever seen a blind man cross the road Trying to make the other side
Ever seen a young girl growing old Trying to make herself a bride 
So what becomes of you my love
When they have finally stripped you of
The handbags and the gladrags That your poor old Grandad Had to sweat to buy you

Once I was a young man
And all I thought I had to do was smile You are still a young girl
And you bought everything in style 
So once you think you're in you're out
'cause you don't mean a single thing without The handbags and the gladrags That your poor old Grandad Had to sweat to buy you

Sing a song of six-pence for your sake
And drink a bottle full of rye
Four and twenty blackbirds in a cake
And bake them all in a pie

They told me you missed school today So what I suggest you just throw them all away
The handbags and the gladrags That your poor old Granddad Had to sweat to buy you

They told me you missed school today So I suggest you just throw them all away
The handbags and the gladrags That your poor old Granddad Had to sweat to buy you
