Now my father was hung for sheep stealing
My mother was burned for a witch
My sister’s a dandy house keeper
And I’m a mechanical switch

Ah, it’s forty long years I have travelled
All by the contents of me pack
Me hammers, me awls and me pinchers
I carry them all on me back

Oh, my wife she is humpy, she’s lumpy
My wife she’s the devil, she’s black
And no matter what I may do with her
Her tongue it goes clickety-clack

It was early one fine summer’s morning
A little before it was day
I dipped her three times in the river
And carelessly bade her ‘Good Day!’
