Lyrics as recorded for the Short Sharp Shanties project [John Short's versions collected by Cecil Sharp 1914]:

ROLLER BOWLER

INTRO:
Hooray you rowler bowler
To my hi rig a jig and a ha ha
Good Morning Ladies all

VERSE & CHORUS:
O the first timne that I saw her
    Hooray, you rowler bowler
O the first time that I saw her
Twas down in playhouse square
    To my Hi rig a jig and a ha ha
    Good morning Ladies all

As I walked out one morning
Down by the riverside

She winked and tipped her flipper
I thought she was my girl

But when she found that I was skint
She left me standing there

O ladies short and ladies tall
O I have had them all
