Lyrics

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
