The Black Sheep Lyrics

In a little village, not many miles away-ay
There lived a rich and aged man whose hair was turning
grey
He had three sons, the only ones, but Jack and Tom were
sly
Ted was honest as could be and would not tell a lie

They did their best to ruin Ted right in the old man's
eyes
Soon their lies began to work and Ted was much despised
One night the old man said begone, you're heartless to
the core
These were the words that the young lad said as he
stood beside the door

Don't be angry with me dad, don't turn me from your
door
I know that I've been wayward, but I won't be anymore
Give me just another chance and put me to the test
You'll find the black sheep loves his dad far better
than the rest

Year after year passed slowly on and the rich man's now
grown old
He called together Jack and Tom and gave them both his
gold
Saying I'll only need a little room right at your
fireside
Then one night Jack, returning home, he brought with
him a bride

His wife began to hate their father more-ore and more
each day
One night he heard the three declare that he was in
their way
They then agreed to send him to a work-house that was
near
And like a flash the black sheep's words came ringing
in his ears

Don't be angry with me dad, don't turn me from your
door
I know that I've been wayward, but I won't be anymore
Give me just another chance and put me to the test
You'll find the black sheep loves his dad far better
than the rest

A carriage pulled up to the door, it was the work-house
van
The lads then turned up to their dad and said here is
your man
Just then a man before 'em appeared, and pushing
through the crowd
Stand back you brutes, the stranger cried, this will
not be allowed

You took this old man's property and all that he had
saved
You even sold his little plot containing mother's grave
I am his son but not your kin from this to judgement
day
The old man clasped the black sheep's hand and the
crowd all heard him say

Don't be angry with me lad, though I turned you from my
door
I know that I was foolish, but I won't be anymore
I should have given you my gold for you have stood the
test
I found the black sheep loves his dad far better than
the rest
