Posh!!!

Lionel Jeffries sings the classic song "Posh" from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang whilst he is being kidnapped in his shed by the villainous Baron Bomburst.

If someone or something is described as "posh" it is considered to be elegant or stylishly luxurious. For example: "a posh hotel". If you have a posh accent you speak in an upper class way.

Lyrics

This is livin', this is style, this is elegance by the mile
Oh the posh posh travelling life, the travelling life for me
First cabin and captain's table regal company
Whenever I'm bored I travel abroad but ever so properly
Port out, starboard home, posh with a capital P-O-S-H, posh

The hands that hold the scepters, every head that holds a crown
They'll always give their all for me they'll never let me down
I'm on my way to far away tah tah and toodle-oo
And fare thee well, and bon voyage, arrivederci too

Oh the posh posh travelling life, the travelling life for me
First cabin and captain's table; regal company
Pardon the dust of the upper crust--fetch us a cup of tea
Port out, starboard home, posh with a capital P-O-S-H, posh

In every foreign strand I land the royal trumpets toot me
The royal welcome mat is out
They 21 gun salute me
But monarchies are constantly commanding me to call
Last month I missed the Mufti but you can't oblige them all

Oh the posh posh travelling life, the travelling life for me
Oh rumpety tumpety didey didey diddly dee dee dee

Oh the posh posh travelling life, the travelling life for me
First cabin and captain's table; regal company
When I'm at the helm the world's my realm and I do it stylishly
Port out, starboard home, posh with a capital P-O-S-H
P-O-S-H, P-O-S-H...
Posh
