Song Lyrics
Farewell landlords, farewell jerry,
Farewell brandy, wine and sherry,
Farewell horrors and blue devils,
Farewell dews of midnight revels,
Farewell fires that have no coal on,
Farewell shoes that have no sole on,
Farewell children with wry faces,
Farewell to the pop shop races,
Farewell wash and all wash vendors,
Farewell dun and all dun senders,
Farewell landlords and your spouses,
Farewell spiders and your houses,
Farewell to your noise and babble,
Farewell to your foolish gabble,
Farewell pockets that are empty,
Farewell landlords, you've had plenty.
