Well come on Suzy’s Parlour, everybody’s welcome to come
(Suzy Parker come on, Suzy Parker)
Said come on Suzy’s Parlour, everybody’s welcome to come
(Suzy Parker come on, Suzy Parker)

When you get to Suzy’s Parlour everybody gets well done
I said come on Suzy’s Parlour, everybody’s welcome to come
(Suzy Parker come on, Suzy Parker)

I said come on Suzy’s Parlour, everybody’s welcome to come
(Suzy Parker come on, Suzy Parker)
