There쳌fs a post on this thread from Liam쳌fs Brother dated 27 Jun 01, which has a version of 쳌eJock Stewart쳌f , but seems very reminiscent of this song:



Do you want your old lobby washed down?

I쳌fve a nice little cot and a small piece of land
And a place that is down by the sea
And I care about no one 쳌ecause I believe
That no body cares about me
My peace is destroyed and I'm fairly annoyed
By a lassie that lives in the town
She cries every day as she passes my way
Do you want your old lobby washed down?

CHORUS

Do you want your old lobby washed down con shine?
Do you want your old lobby washed down?
She cries every day as she passes my way
Do you want your old lobby washed down?

The other day the old landlord came round for his rent
And I told him no money I had
Besides 'twas not fair for to ask me to pay
As the times were so awfully bad
He seemed discontent at not getting his rent
And he shook his old head with a frown
Says he I'll take half
And said I with a laugh
Do you want your old lobby washed down?

Now the boys of the town when they go a-courting
They seem to be terribly shy
For to kiss a young maid
Sure they seem half afraid
But they would if they could on the sly
But me, I do things in a different way
And I don't give a fuss or a frown
When I goes to court
I says here goes for sport
Do you want your old lobby washed down?


Does anyone know which would쳌fve been the original?
