The show opens with the excitement that the new Lord Hareford has been found. Bill Snibson, is rather a surprise to the stuffy upper classed family. Bill, an unapologetically unrefined cockney, will only receive his inheritance if Sir John and the Duchess approve of him. The Duchess feels that with a little grooming, Bill will be suitable to inherit the title – and the money. However, she insists that Bill break up with his cockney girlfriend, Sally. The Duchess' daughter, the sexy Lady Jacqueline ditches her soppy Gerald and sets her sights on Bill but to no avail though there are some very memorable songs!

Sally is buoyed along by Bill even although she is uncertain but he assures her that none can part them. Sir John tries to persuade Sally to leave taking Bill but he is taken by her plight as shown in Once You Lose Your Heart.

The Duchess throws a party to which Sally and her cockney chums crash in order to pursudae Bill that she is no good for his new found status. It has the opposite effect and he decides to leave with Sally but not before they explain the differences between Hareford and Lambeth via The Lambeth Walk.

The second act opens with the cheerful tap number, The Sun Has Got Its Hat On. Despite their previously expressed intention to leave, Bill and Sally have remained at Hareford. Sir John, who is now firmly on their side, wants them to marry. Because he must soon make his maiden speech in the House of Lords, Bill, in coronet and "vermin"-collared scarlet cape, is in the library rehearsing. Afterwards Sally makes a discrete exit and the Duchess tries to improve Bill's knowledge of his ancestors when the portraits come alive and they tell him themselves. Back in Lambeth, Sally receives a telegram from Bill advising that he is chucking everything to be with her. She also receives a visit from Sir John offering his help at beating the Duchess at her own game. How can Sally do it? Simply by staying at the home of a speech professor he knows who lives on Wimpole Street. Sally leaves before Bill appears to explain to a policeman that he is Leaning on a Lamppost not because he is loitering but because he's hoping that "a certain little lady comes by."  The show ends in another ball back at Hareford. Now despairing of Bill because he does nothing but moan about his Lambeth love, the Duchess finally comes to realize how much Sally means to him. In her new mellow mood, she accepts Sir John's offer of marriage, and even Gerald gets Lady Jaquie to accept his offer. Then Sally returns to shock everyone as a clipped bona fide lady and captures everyone's hearts.
