I sing this song in Sheffield - I got it off Ray Padgett from Barnsley and I don't know where he got it from, but it's become my theme tune and I'd like to know where it comes from:

The second verse is most unchanged I think...

If a king should sit beside me
I would sup with my usual glee
let muppets, marks and fools deride me
Still, I'll free and easy be.

Chorus

Oh, let the world jog along as it pleases
I'll be free and easy still
Free and easy, free and easy,
I'll be free and easy still.

Many thanks - Whispering Chris.

Chris, I got it from The Broadside band (Grimsby/Cleethorpes) band ~ vinyl recording ~ which had John Conolly and Brian dawson as its members ~ Ithink it is in an EFDSS publication somewhere too

Johnny Collins sang it but i think was short of an odd verse
