Interesting song.


The Roving Repairman-O
© 1983 & 1987 by Annie Lore

1. I am a roving repairman-o,
The rural routes I ri-ide,
And I shall not park my utility van
Till my love is by my side,
Till my love is by my side.

2. He gave a knock at the kitchen door;
The lady said “ 'O's the-ere?”
“Oh, I am a roving repairman-o,
“Have you any that needs repair?
Have you any that needs repair?”

3. “I have a frost-free fridge, good sir,
That's nane sae free of the fro-ost;
I'd be much obliged if you'd glance inside,
But pray, what might be the cost?
But pray, what might be the cost?”

4. “Nine bob for the job I've ofttimes got,
Nine bob, or nine and three-ee,
But to have one kiss of your domestic lips
I'd gladly work for free,
I'd gladly work for free.”

5. “A kiss or a hug I would nae grudge,
You have beguil-ed me so-o,
And I'd leave my frost-free fridge to thaw,
And along with you I'd go,
And along with you I'd go.”

6. So her gloves of rubber she has cast off,
And her apron white as sno-ow;
She's grabbed her toothbrush and gone along
With the roving repairman-o,
With the roving repairman-o.

7. I am a roving repairman-o,
The rural routes I ri-ide,
And I shall not park my utility van
Till my love is by my side,
Till my love is by my side.

Hm, I didn't see the author being named the first time I read this. But I also didn't intentionally type a "?" before the name of the LP. Does that even the problems out?
