The Lyrics

Lyrics attributed to Noel Gay & Ralph Butler, song initially recorded by Ambrose & His Orchestra.and released by HMV in 1932. Vocalist: Sam Browne.
The sun is out in London, pip-pip-pip Sue Gray
The sun is out in London
And the people shout “Hooray!”
Sneaky cronies party
Chomping on their cheese
The inner clique of Downing Street,
Doing as they please

They've been on the radio setting out the rules
Now they want to drop their guard, playing us for fools,
So bring along a bottle
Pop the cork and spray,
The sun's come out in London
So we'd better tell Sue Gray

All the journalists are mocking
Policeman at the gates unlocking
Many invitees in twos and threes
Boozing in the sun that day

The fun comes back to London, pip-pip-pip Sue Gray
The sun is out in London
And the people shout “Hooray!”
See the cronies party
Chomping on their cheese
The inner clique of Downing Street,
Doing as they please
Sue Gray, an experienced civil servant of high repute, was asked by the UK's prime minister Boris Johnson to look into the circumstances surrounding social gatherings on or around government premises during a period of severe social "lockdown" in 2020 that was in turn based upon a limited knowledge of the rampant coronavirus. An e-mail invitation relating to a garden gathering on 20th May 2020 emphasized the lovely weather as a factor conducive to outdoor assembly. Luckily, most of the people receiving that message chose not to attend.
