DT Lyrics:

Subject: The World is surely getting small
From: Richard Mellish
Date: 12 Jul 18 - 04:58 AM

It occurs to me to mention a little song that I've known for yonks. Words as follows:

I once knew an old man who had a wooden leg.
He spent all day drinking porter from a keg.
I knew another old man who had no legs at all.
Oh the World is surely getting small.

I once knew an old one* who had a glass eye.
She spent all day gazing up into the sky.
I knew another old one who had no eyes at all.
Oh the World is surely getting small.

*i.e. an old woman

Apparently Irish but beyond that I know nothing about it. I do not remember where I got it.

Anyone know anything?
