Subject: Lyr Add: WHISKY ON A SUNDAY
Rather than clutter up the Kid Mudcatteers thread with messages from oldies like me (34 - nearly 35!) here's the lyrics to this songs as I know them - hope it's useful!


He sits on the corner of Beggar’s Bush
Astride of an old packing case.
And the dolls on the end of the plank are dancing
As he croons with a smile on his face:

CHORUS: Come day, Go day,
Wishing me heart it was Sunday
Drinking buttermilk all the week
And it’s whisky on a Sunday.

His tired old hand on the wooden beam
As the puppets they danced up and down.
A finer show than you ever would see
At the fanciest theatre in town. CHORUS:

Well in 1902 old Seth Davy died
And his songs they were heard no more.
And the three dancing dolls in the dustbin were thrown
And the plank went to mend the back door. CHORUS:

Well if you ever go down by Beggar’s Bush
When the wind’s blowing up from the sea,
You can still hear the songs of old Seth Davy
As he croons to his dancing dolls three. CHORUS: (X 2)
