E 
‘Twas very early in the month of June,
 
As I was  
B7 
sitting 
 
 
E 
in my room,
 
I heard a thrush singing  
A 
in a bush,
 
And the  
B7 
song it sang was the jug of  
E 
punch.

Too ra loo ra loo, too ra loo ra loo

 
Too ra  
B7 
loo ra loo, too ra  
E 
loo ra loo
 
I heard a  
E7 
thrush sing  
A 
in a bush
 
And the  
B7 
song it sang was the Jug of  
E 
Punch

What more diversion can a man desire
Than to be seated by a snug coal fire
Upon his knee a pretty wench
And on the table a jug of punch

If I were sick and very bad
And was not able to go or stand
I would not think it at all to amiss
To pledge my shoes for a jug of punch.

The doctor fails with all his art
To cure an impression on the heart
But if life was gone within an inch
What would bring it back but a jug of punch?

But when I’m dead and in my grave
No costly tombstone will I have
But they’ll dig a grave both wide and deep
With a jug of punch at my head and feet.

[E]‘Twas very early in the month of June,

As I was [B7]sitting [E]in my room,

I heard a thrush singing [A]in a bush,

And the [B7]song it sang was the jug of [E]punch.

 

[Chorus]

Too ra loo ra loo, too ra loo ra loo

Too ra [B7]loo ra loo, too ra [E]loo ra loo

I heard a [E7]thrush sing [A]in a bush

And the [B7]song it sang was the Jug of [E]Punch

What more diversion can a man desire
Than to be seated by a snug coal fire
Upon his knee a pretty wench
And on the table a jug of punch

If I were sick and very bad
And was not able to go or stand
I would not think it at all to amiss
To pledge my shoes for a jug of punch.

The doctor fails with all his art
To cure an impression on the heart
But if life was gone within an inch
What would bring it back but a jug of punch?

But when I’m dead and in my grave
No costly tombstone will I have
But they’ll dig a grave both wide and deep
With a jug of punch at my head and feet.
