Do you want your old lobby washed down

Lyrics

I’ve a nice little cot and small bit of land
And a place by the side of the sea
And I care about no one because I believe
There’s nobody cares about me
My peace is destroyed and I’m fairly annoyed
By a lassie who works in the town
She sighs every day as she passes the way
Do you want your old lobby washed down ?

CHORUS
Do you want your old lobby washed down, Con Shine
Do you want your old lobby washed down ?
She sighs every day as she passes the way
Do you want your old lobby washed down ?

The other day the old landlord came by for his rent
I told him no money I had
Besides ’twasn’t fair for to ask me to pay
The times were so awfully bad
He felt discontent at not getting his rent
And he shook his big head in a frown
Says he ‘I’ll take half’, ‘But’, says I with a laugh
Do you want your old lobby washed down ?
chorus

The boys look so bashful when they go a courtin’
They seem to look awfully shy
As to kiss a young maid, sure they seem half afraid
But they would if they could on the sly
But me, I do things in a different way
I don’t give a nod or a frown
When I goes to court I says ‘Here goes for sport
Do you want your old lobby washed down ?
Chorus
