Ricky Doo Dum Day

Oh I'm a lad that likes a drink
The whisky is ma brew
But deil the drink I'll tak again
The truth I'll tell tae you

Ricky doo dum day, doo dum day
Ricky dicky doo dum day

One night I went intae a pub
Some whisky for tae buy
There was a wee bint there sittin in the bar
And I followed her by and by

And when she came up tae her close
She started tie her shoes
In a weel mannered way I says tae her
Hullo miss how are you

She took one look at me and screamed
I nearly died wi fear
And the neighbours that came pourin oot
Said ye cannae dae that there here

And then her faither he came doon
And he was twenty stane
He stoted ma heid right aff the wa
And the whisky went doon the drain

And then there cam a polis man
The lang arm o the law
An he is gein me another clout
That nearly broke my jaw

Noo a you lads who're here tonight
Shun the beer and whisky
Or else youll hae your heid bashed in
For drinkin's ow'er risky
