Thread Name: Balls cried the Queen, if I had two...
Subject: RE: Balls cried the Queen, if I had two...
Lady P: That one used to get regular airings at Scout campfires (goodness knows why)
And goes on much longer.
Ignoring the "Booo" and "Hurrayyy" after alternate lines (I'm saving my cut and paste for line breaks until I can find a suitable Function Key)

There's a house on the hill.
A public house

They don't sell beer,
They give it away.

They don't have glasses,
They use buckets instead

There's holes in the buckets,
To drink out of

There's only one bar,
Five miles long.

There's only one barmaid,
One each that is

The barmaids wear black stockings.
Thats all.

There's a lot more to this story,
But I'm not going to tell you.

I might have missed some as well, but not for want of trying. I last heard this about 20 years ago.
