rechal@earthlink.net Lyr Req: Pretty Peg (from The Bothy Band) (53* d) Pretty Peg/Bothy Band 08 Jun 97


I'm looking for the lyrics to "Pretty Peg" as recorded by the Bothy Band. The song goes like this:

When Pretty Peg walked down the street Some fresh fish for to buy When the (?) passed, followed I after her, And I kissed her by-and-by.

With my tilly-right-fol-di-diddle-di-do With my tilly-right-fol-di-diddle-dan

Oh, how can I get to your chamber lover, How can I get to your bed? When your daddy goes to bed at night Wi' the key lyin' under head (?)

With my tilly-right-fol-di-diddle-di-do With my tilly-right-fol-di-diddle-dan

Oh, go and get the ladder love Of thirty steps and three And put it to the chimney top And come down in a dream to me.

Etcetera.... I know most of the lyrics, just can't quite make out some of the words.
