Thread Name: Lyr Req: Yodeling Songs
Subject: Lyr Add: THE COBBLER
Hi, my name is Les (from England)
I learned these words to 'The Cobbler' song way back in the 50s and have sang them many, many times over the years.
I didn't know there were so many people interested in yodelling until I came upon your page.
Just in case anyone is interested, I have typed in the words. I sure hope someone can come up with a recording of it.
If I remember rightly, I think it was recorded by Harry Wulson.
I hope someone, somewhere can use and enjoy the song as much as I have.
                  Thanks for listening
                  Les (the Brit)


I started my life as a cobbler
Working from morning till night
To earn a good honest living
I've struggled hard all my life
Now the years when I was single
I wish that I had been wed
So a nice little widow some morning
Would bring up my breakfast to bed

With a twi ey ti iddle ey
and a whack fal ey doodle ey ay
With a whack fal ey doodle ey addie
With a whack fal ey doodle ey ay


Well I think I will put up my shutters
cos the business is getting quite dull
I can't make enough for tobacco -
It's driving me up the pole
So to all of those Government skivvies
and the people that tax you so well
If I had my own way with the blighters
I'd drop 'em right down in the well

With a twi ey ti iddle ey
and a whack fal ey doodle ey ay
With me last and me tacks and me hammer
I'd yodel my worries away
