Le Touquet

Le Touquet

(Tolchard Evans)

Ronnie Munro and his Orchestra

You make a trip to Paris
To meet Tom, Dick and Harry
But next time you reach Calais
Travel North

You'll know you reached Le Touquet
When to all the lads you say
"Lets have a drink and you pay"
We all know

I'm one of the lads of Le Touquet
I'm just a smasher at croquet
I win their dollars
And they get limp collars
When all the old buffers , I play

I'm one of the lads of Le Touquet
At indoor sports too, I'm OK
With the Dutchess, the minx
I have played tiddly-winks
I'm one of the lads of Le Touquet
