Swinging along
A lad from Lancashire
The Lancashire Romeo
Imagine me in the Maginot Line
Grandad's flannelette nightshirt
Mr. Wu's a window cleaner now
Count your blessings and smile
Oh! don't the wind blow cold?
You've got something there
I always get to bed by half-past nine
On the Wigan boat express
Down the old coal hole
I'm the ukelele man
On the beat
Letting the new year in
Bless' em all
Guarding the home of the Home Guards
I wish I was back on the farm
Formby favourites for the forces 1/2
Thanks, Mr. Roosevelt
Bless 'em all no. 2
It might have been a great deal worse
You'd be far better off in a home
I did what I could with my gas mask
Delivering the morning milk
The Emperor of Lancashire
You can't go wrong in these
Auntie Maggie's remedy
You're everything to me
I'd do it with a smile
The left-hand side of Egypt
Who are you a-shoving of?
The barmaid at the Rose and Crown
I played on my Spanish guitar
Swing mama
George Formby's crazy record parts 1/2
Formby film favourites parts 1/2
Katy did, Katy didn't
Frank on his tank
Smile all the time
Out in the Middle East
Andy the handy man
They laughed when I started to play
Talking to the moon about you
Got to get your photo in the press
Mr. Wu's an air raid warden now
Sally the salvage queen
Thirty thirsty sailors
Hold your hats on
The cook house serenade
You can't love two girls at the same time
Under the blasted oak
When the lads of the village get crackin'
When the waterworks caught fire
The baby show
Home Guard blues
Oh! you have no idea
Spotting on top of Blackpool Tower
Sentimental Lou
British Isles medley
American medley
On the HMS Cowheel
Bunty's such a big girl now
It serves you right (you shouldn't have joined)
If I had a girl like you
Swim, little fish
Bell bottom George
The "V" sign song
The old cane bottom chair
Our Fanny's gone all Yankee
Unconditional surrender
Blackpool prom
Mr. Wu's in the air force
The daring young man
I'd like a dream like that
She's got two of everything
Up in the air and down in the dumps
Excerpt from Get cracking
You don't need a licence for that
The mad March Hare
It could be
We've been a long time gone
Auntie Maggie's remedy
Leaning on a lamp post
When I'm cleaning windows
Come hither with your zither
Saving up for Sally
Pleasure cruise
Ordinary people
Zip goes a million
It takes no time to fall in love
Nothing breaks but the heart
Do de o do
Chinese laundry blues
You can't keep a growing lad down [2 takes]
It's no use looking at me
John Willie's Jazz Band
There's nothing proud about me
Madame Moscovitch
Sitting on the sands all night
Dare-devil Dick
The ghost
Mother, what'll I do now?
Hitting the high spots
Under the blasted oak
Oh! you have no idea
The "V" sign song.
