The Jolly Tinker
Traditional
As I went down a shady lane, as a door I chanced to knock
Have you any pots or kettles with rusty holes to block?

Well, indeed I have, don't you know I have?
To me rightful loora laddie, well, indeed I have

The missus came out to the door and she asked me to come in
Sayin': "You're welcome jolly tinker and I hope you brought your tin?"

Well, indeed I did, don't you know I did?
To me rightful loora laddie, well, indeed I did

She took me through the kitchen and she led me through the hall
And the servants cried: "The divil, has he come to block us all?"

Well, indeed I have, don't you know I have?
To me rightful loora laddie, well, indeed I have

She took me up the stairs, me lads, to show me what to do
And she fell on the featherbed and I fell on it too

Well, indeed I did, don't you know I did?
To me rightful loora laddie, well, indeed I did

She then picked up the frying-pan and she began to knock
For to let the servants know, me lads, that I was at me work

Well, indeed I was, don't you know I was?
To me rightful loora laddie, well, indeed I was

She put her hand into her pocket and she pulled out twenty pound
Say: "Take this me jolly tinker and we'll have another round

Well, indeed we will, don't you know we will?
To me rightful loora laddie, well, indeed we will

Well, I've been a jolly tinker for this forty years or more
Oh, but such a lovely job as that I never did before

Well, indeed I didn't, don't you know I didn't?
To me rightful loora laddie
Well, indeed I didn't
