As I went down a shady lane, at 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 right fol-ooral-addy, well indeed I have"

The misses came out to the door and she asked me to come in
"You're welcome jolly tinker and I hope you brought your tin"
"Well indeed I did, don't you know I did
To me right fol-ooral-addy, well indeed I did"

She took me through the kitchen and she led me through the hall
And the servants cried "The devil, has he come to block us all
"Well indeed I have, don't you know I have
To me right fol-ooral-addy, well indeed I have"

She took me up the stairs, me lads, to show me what to do
Then she fell on the feathery bed and I fell on it too
"Well indeed I did, don't you know I did
To me right fol-ooral-addy, well indeed I did"

She then took out a frying pan and she began to knock
For to let the servants know, me lads, that I was at my work
"Well indeed I was, don't you know I was
To me right fol-ooral-addy, well indeed I was"

She put her hand into her pocket and she pulled out twenty pounds
"Take that my jolly tinker and we'll have another round"
"Well, indeed we will, don't you know we will
To me right fol-ooral-addy, well indeed we will"

Well, I've been a jolly tinker for these forty years or more
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 right fol-ooral-addy, well indeed I didn't"
