C 
I’ve got a nice little cot and a

And a  
G7 
place by the side of the  
C 
sea

And I don’t care about no-one

Because I believe there’s  
G7 
nobody cares about

me
 
My  
G7 
peace is destroyed and I’m

fairly 
 
annoyed
 
By a

lassie who

works in the

She  
C 
sighs 
 
ev’ry

want your old lobby washed

G7 
want your old lobby washed  
C 
down?’

C7 
day as she  
F 
passes the

way
 
‘Do you

The other day the landlord came by for his rent
I told him no money I had
Besides ’twasn’t fair 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

‘Now the boys look so bashful when they go out courtin’
They seem to look so very 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
