Handbags and Gladrags Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
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
