Do you want your old lobby washed down

Lyrics

I’ve a nice little pub and a small bit of land
And a place by the side of the sea
And I care about no one because I believe
That nobody cares about me
My peace is destroyed and I’m fairly annoyed
By a lassie who works in the town
She sighs every day as she passes the way
Do you want your old lobby washed down.

Chorus
Do you want your old lobby washed down, sunshine
Do you want your old lobby washed down,
She sighs every day as she passes the way
Do you want your old lobby washed down.

The landlord came by for the rent yesterday
I told him no money I had
Besides ’twasn’t fair to ask me to pay
The times are so awfully bad
He felt discontent at not getting the rent
And he shook his big head in a frown
Says he, I’ll take half, but says I, with a laugh,
Do you want your old lobby washed down.

Chorus

Now the boys look so bashful when they go out courting
They seem to look so very shy
As to kiss a young maid, they seem half afraid
But they would if they could on the sly
But me I do things in a different way
I don’t give a nod or a frown
When I goes to court, I say, here goes for sport
Do you want your old lobby washed down.

Chorus
