Kandinsky And Son
(Dee Shipman / Roger Webb)

Because he was a wise man Joe
My father taught me all I know
Of how to measure, cut and sew
Because he had a plan...............

Kandinsky and Son!
Kandinsky and Son!
Would come to be 
Undoubtedly
Acknowledged by society
The best in all the land
That's what my father planned

Kandinsky and Son!
Kandinsky and Son!
The finest of them all
Bar none...........!
A great alliance!
Such clients!
Like giants 
We would stand!
Kandinsky
Kandinsky and Son!

A partnership he hoped to see
For making suits, eventually
The jackets him
The trousers me
Without a middle man.....

Kandinsky and Son!
Kandinsky and Son! 
My father's dream
A perfect team
With every suit 
From head to seam
Sartorially grand
That's what my father planned

Kandinsky and Son!
Kandinsky and Son!
The finest of them all 
Bar none........!
The finest stitches
The britches
The riches 
We'd command..........!
Kandinsky
Kandinsky
That's what my father planned
Kandinsky
Kandinsky and Son!

No jobbing for some other bloke
From cloth to client
All bespoke
Each collar, cuff, revere and yoke
Made perfectly by hand.......

Kandinsky and Son!
Kandinsky and Son!
A larger store
Then two, then more!
With moving stairs 
From floor to floor
Each year we would expand
That's what my father planned.......

Kandinsky and Son!
Kandinsky and Son!
The finest of them all
Bar none..........!
And every shop a
Showstopper!
From Poplar 
To the Strand......
Kandinsky
Kandinsky
Each year we would expand
Kandinsky
Kandinsky
That's what my father planned
Kandinsky
Kandinsky.........

Making suits with no lump or bump
For each shape and size 
Of each rump and hump
Within thirty miles of the Aldgate Pump.......!
Kandinsky
Kandinsky and Son!
