Thread Name: Lyr Req: A Smuggler's Song (Rudyard Kipling)
Subject: Smuggler's Song
Got a copy of this song from a friend of mine, but it's a bit fast paced for me to try and figure out all the words, there's a few missing here and there. Anyone care to give it a try, or at least a variation? Chorus goes "Five and twenty ponies trotting in the dark / Brandy for the parson and 'baccy for the clerk / Laces for a lady and letters for a spy / And watch the wall my darling while the gentlemen go by"
