Cheltenham Ladies

i met a lovely lassie when i came to cheltenham town
she was tall and dark and handsome and i couldn’t turn her down
her lips were large and sensual – she whispered in my ear
come home with me my darling when you’ve finished with your beer

and we lay
in her bed
and we laughed and we loved til the sun turned the sky red
raise your glasses to the cheltenham ladies

next time i was in cheltenham i didn’t have a doubt
i called her on the telephone and invited her out
she said that she was courting now and so i sat alone
until a blond haired beauty came along and took me home

and we lay
in her bed
and we laughed and we loved til the sun turned the sky red
raise your glasses to the cheltenham ladies

the girl behind the bar they told me wasn’t into men
so it came as some surprise when she took me home to her den
she said her girlfriend and her ex had been with the same man
and asked me just how many times I’d been to cheltenham

and we lay
in her bed
and we laughed and we loved til the sun turned the sky red
raise your glasses to the cheltenham ladies
