You hear the bells, you heed the warning
You know the morris men are coming
No rabbit's foot or four-leafed clover
Protects you from the rambling herbert
When you're straying from the city
An act of morris may be committed

The morris man cometh, the morris man cometh
Slapping thighs and kicking arses
The morris man cometh, the morris man cometh
Up from Kent, across Devizes

Now Mr. Fox, he walks among us
The eyes of spring, our country masters
We took our leave in the Star & Garter
From prancing, aled-up, clog-dance bastards

The morris man cometh, the morris man cometh
Slapping thighs and kicking arses
The morris man cometh, the morris man cometh
Up from Kent, across Devizes

Click, click, click
Go the sticks
Kick, kick, kick
Of the arses
Fuck, fuck, fuck
Says the ram
We have hanky, but no panky

The morris man cometh, the morris man cometh
Slapping thighs and kicking arses
The morris man cometh, the morris man cometh
Up from Kent, across Devizes

Keep your distance from rural mincers
They'll gouge your eyes out with butcher's fingers

The morris man cometh
