British Mariachi

Traditional with additional lyrics by Micky Slinger

There was an old farmer who sat on a rock,
stroking his whiskers and waving his

Fist at his neighbors who sat on their ricks,
while the boys in a circle did play with their

Kite strings and marbles in the old days of yore,
when along came a lady who looked like a

Decent young lady but walked like a duck,
she said she’d discovered a new way to

Bring up the children to sew and to knit,
while the boys in the stables were shoveling up

Contents of stables left after the hunt,
while the carman was getting a nice piece of

Straw from the stables and cleaning the walls,
when along came a fair-maid to play with his

Dog in the dairy where she did belong,
she said that her husbands go a mighty big

Axe that’s much sharper than any or’ his wits,
and their lovely daughters got a nice pair of

Shoes from the cobbler that he made for fun,
he said she could pay him by making him

Pie in her kitchen where she keeps the glass,
and well everyone knows she takes it up the

Hill to the tavern where she goes each night
If you think that was dirty you’re bloody well right!
