The Jolly Tinker Lyrics

As I went down a shady lane, at 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 right fol-ooral-addy, well indeed I have'
The misses came out to the door and she asked me to
come in
'You're welcome jolly tinker and I hope you brought
your tin'
She took me through the kitchen and she led me through
the hall
And the servants cried 'The devil, has he come to block
us all
She took me up the stairs, me lads, to show me what to
do
Then she fell on the feather bed and I fell on it too

Well, indeed I did, don't you know I did...
She then took out a frying pan and she began to knock
For to let the servants know, me lads, that I was at my
work
Well, Indeed I was, don't you know I was...
She put her hand into her pocket and she pulled out
twenty pounds
'Take that my jolly tinker and we'll have another
round'
'Well, indeed we will, don't you know we will...
She put her hand into her pocket and she pulled out a
gold watch
'Take that my jolly tinker, for B'Jesus, you're no
botch'
'Well, indeed I'm not, don't you know I'm not...
Well, I've been a jolly tinker for these forty years or
more
But such a lovely job as that, I never did before
Well, indeed I didn't, don't you know I didn't...
