So is the old house
Still in the same place?
The same old pictures on the wall?
Does father still wear the same old trousers
Does mother wear the same old shawl
Do you still keep a lodger in the top back room,
the same old carpet on the floor,
does the old tom cat still sleep upon the mat
with the ginger cat that lives next door.
And then, it went into this other part that went:
Waloo waloo waloo malloo
She had a fine tattoo
Just like the ocean blue
There was a man a silly man who followed her 500 miles
to see if he could see the sea
to watch the tide go out.
This is exactly the version my grandfather used to sing to me - wonderful.
