Song Lyrics
Verse 1

There's soldiers and sailors and boys from the plough,
And four headed oxen and two headed cow,
But the best thing of all I'm sure 'twas there,
But I could not tell one half that was there.

Verse 2

I'll tell you the truth and I don't give a pin,
There's a lot of old women gets drunk with gin.
