Consider Yourself    (1960)

Consider yourself at home
Consider yourself one of the family
We've taken to you so strong
It's clear we're going to get along

Consider yourself well in
Consider yourself part of the furniture
There isn't a lot to spare, who cares?
What ever we've got we share

If it should chance to be we should see some harder days
Empty larder days, why grouse?
Always a chance we'll meet somebody to foot the bill
Then the drinks are on the house

Consider yourself our mate
We don't want to have no fuss
For after some consideration we can state
Consider yourself one of us

Consider yourself at home
Consider yourself one of the family
We've taken to you so strong
It's clear we're going to get along

Consider yourself well in
Consider yourself part of the furniture
There isn't a lot to spare, who cares?
What ever we've got we share

Nobody tries to be lah-di-dah and up-ety
There's a cup o' tea for all
Only it's wise to be handy with a rollong pin
When the landlord comes to call

Consider yourself our mate
We don't want to have no fuss
For after some consideration we can state
Consider yourself one of us
