thank you Mrs Lowsborough Goosborough song/verse fragment

Thanks for nothing

Origin

From the Cole Porter song Thank you so much Mrs Lowsborough-Goodby

Collected by

Granny D –
Marion Dixon (Howes) – mother of Mum, spouse of Pop

Notes

Lyrics include:
Thank you a lot, Mrs. Lowsborough-Goodby,
Thank you a lot,
And don’t be surprised if you suddenly should be quietly shot
For the clinging perfume
And that damp little room,
For those cocktails so hot
And the bath that was not,

Granny would somtimes recite the last two of those lines
