AFTER THAT, MY TIME IS ALL MY OWN

BERTIE IN LOVE

CAN'T YOU MAKE YOUR MIND UP?

CAN'T YOU TAKE MY WORD?

CUPID

THE DAY THAT I BECAME A MILLIONAIRE

DID HE?

DON'T APOLOGIZE

DON'T BLAME ME

DON'T MIND ME

DON'T SAY IT LIKE THAT PLEASE

EVERYBODY NOTICES ME

FANCY I'M OFF THE EARTH

GET ON MY BACK, I'LL CARRY YOU ABOUT

HAVE MINE!

HE DOESN'T MEAN ANY HARM

HOW DARE YOU!

I ALWAYS LIKE TO DO THINGS NICE AND FRIENDLY

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY

I DIDN'T LIKE IT

I DON'T WANT TO

I FANCY YOU'RE LOOKING FOR ME

IF I DID

IF I'M POOR I'M PROUD AND I'M PARTICULAR

IMAGINATION

IS IT NECESSARY?

I THOUGHT YOU KNEW

IT'S A SHAME

IT'S NICE TO KNOW PEOPLE WHO ARE KIND

I WONDER

I WOULDN'T MIND TAKING HIS PALCES

LANGUAGE

LET IT GO

THE MONEY I SHALL NEVER GET

MUST YOU?

MY AUNT'S WILL

NEVER AGAIN

THE NIGHT WATCHMAN

OH! HER FACE

OH! TOMORROW

PROVERBS

THE RAILWAY PORTER

THE SANDWICH WALK

SHAN'T TAKE YOU OUT ANY MORE

THE SIGHTS OF LONDON

SO AM I 

SUCH A THING IS REALLY POSSIBLE

SURELY NOT!

THAT'S ENOUGH

VALUE FOR MONEY

WATCHING 'EM

WE'VE ALL BEEN THERE

WHAT A FACE!

WHAT A NICE LITTLE THING

WHAT A SILLY I MUST HAVE BEEN

WHAT DID I DO?

WHAT DOES HE WANT IT FOR?

WHAT OH! TIME TO GO

WHAT'S THE GOOD?

WHEN IS IT MY TURN?

WHEN SHE WALKS

WHERE?

WHERE'S THE GOOD?

WHILE YOU CAN

WHY CAN'T HE TAKE MY WORD?

WILL HE?

WORK

WOULDN'T YOU?

YOU DO SOON CHANGE YOR MIND.
