There were four drunken maidens Lived on the Isle of Wight They drank from Monday morning 'til midnight Saturday night When Saturday night rolled round, me boys, These girls just wouldn't go out These four drunken maidens kept pushing the jug about Then in comes bouncing Sally Her cheeks as red as blooms Move up, me jolly sisters, and give young Sally some room and I will be your equal before the night is out And these four drunken maidens kept pushing the jug about There's woodcock and pheasant, partridge and hare There's all sorts of dainties No scarcity was there There's forty pints of beer, me boys, They've fairly drank them out And these four drunken maidens kept pushing the jug about Then up comes the landlord He's asking for his fee There's a bill for forty pounds, me boys, these gobs have got to pay That's ten pounds apiece, me boys, but still they wouldn't go out And these four drunken maidens kept pushing the jug about Oh, where are your feathered hats, your mantles rich and fine? They've all got swallowed up, me boys, in tankards of good wine And where are your maidenheads, you maidens rich and gay? We left them at the alehouse and drank them clean away

It's of a brisk young butcher as I have heard them say. He started out of London town upon a certain day. Says he, "A frolic I will have, my fortunes for to try. I will go into Leicestershire some cattle for to buy, When he arrived at Leicester town he came into an inn He called for an ostler and boldly walked in. He called for liquors of the best, he played the roving blade And quickly fixed his eye upon a lovely chambermaid. Then she took a candle to light him up to bed When he came into the room, these words to her he said: "One sovereign I will give to you all to enjoy your charms." and this fair maid all night did sleep all in the butcher's arms. It was early the next morning he prepared to go away. The landlord said "Your reckoning, sir, you did forget to pay." "Oh,", the butcher did reply "please do not think it strange. One sovereign I gave your maid, and I haven't got the change.” Thye straightway called the chambermaid and charged her with the same. The golden sovereign she laid down, for fear she'd get the blame; Was then the butcher he went home, well pleased with what had passed And soon this pretty chambermaid grew thick about the waist. 'Twas nearly twelvemonth later he came to town again And as he had done before he stopped at that same inn. 'Twas then the pretty chambermaid she chanced him for to see; She brought a babe, just three months old, and placed it on his knee The butcher sat like one amazed and at the child did stare And when the joke he did find out, how he did stamp and swear. "Oh, kind sir, it is your own, so do not think it strange One sovereign you gave to me and here I brought the change."

Skewbald 04:36
You gallant gentlemen all, come listen to me story It's of the bold Skewbald that noble racing pony Arthur Marvel was the man who has brought the Skewbald over He's a diamond of the land and he rolls around in clover The horses were brought out with saddle, whip and bridle And the gentlemen did shout when they saw the noble rider And some did shout hooray as the air was thick with curses On the grey Griselda sportsmen laid their purses The trumpet it did sound, they shot off like an arrow They scarcely touched the ground for the going it was narrow Then Griselda passed him by, the gentlemen did holler, "Oh, the grey will win the day and the Skewbald he will follow." Then halfway round the track up spoke the noble rider, "I fear we must fall back for she's going like a tiger." And when they did discourse, bold Skewbald flew like lightning and chased around the course, and the grey mare she was taken "Ride on, my noble lord, for they have two hundred guineas and the prize shall be of gold when we pick become the winner." Then past the winning post Skewbald won so handy And horse and rider both ordered sherry wine and brandy You gallant gentlemen all, come listen to me story It's of the bold Skewbald that noble racing pony Arthur Marvel was the man who has brought the Skewbald over He's a diamond of the land and he rolls around in clover

When the sun comes up, and the first quail calls Follow the drinkin' gourd The old man is waiting for to carry you to freedom Follow the drinkin' gourd Follow the drinkin' gourd Follow the drinkin' gourd For the old man is waiting to carry you to freedom Follow the drinkin' gourd Well the river bank makes a mighty good road Dead trees will show you the way Left foot, peg foot, travelin' on Follow the drinkin' gourd Follow the drinkin' gourd Follow the drinkin' gourd For the old man is waiting to carry you to freedom Follow the drinkin' gourd Well the river ends, between two hills Follow the drinkin' gourd There's another river on the other side Follow the drinkin' gourd Follow the drinkin' gourd Follow the drinkin' gourd For the old man is waiting to carry you to freedom Follow the drinkin' gourd

A black eyed dog he called at my door A black eyed dog he called for more A black eyed dog knew my name A black eyed dog knew my name A black eyed dog A black eyed dog. I'm growing old and I want to go home I'm growing old and I don't want to know I'm growing old and I want to go home. A black eyed dog he called at my door A black eyed dog he called for more.

Coming to terms with all the righteous mess Coming to terms, we squint and do our best To see the open road To see the open road Coming to terms we turn ourselves to the storm Digging in our heels, we're scarred for life and worn We're worn down to the bone We're worn down to the bone And the mission bells are ringing clear Shining bright to draw you near Go rest easy in the sound Go rest easy in the sound Coming to terms we turn and face the facts Coming to terms we face the deception, the acts Oh, our eyes are open wide The tears have fallen and dried And the mission bells are ringing clear Shining bright to draw you near Go rest easy in the sound Go rest easy in the sound

Oh, ye mariners all, as you pass by Come in and drink if you are dry Come spend, my lads, your money brisk And pop your nose in a jug of this Oh, ye mariners all, if you've half a crown You're welcome all for to sit down Come spend, my lads, your money brisk And pop your nose in a jug of this And now I'm old and can scarcely crawl Have an old grey beard and a head that's bald Feel my desire, fulfil my bliss A pretty girl and a jug of this Oh, when I'm in my grave and dead And all my sorrows are past and fled Transform me then into a fish And let me swim in a jug of this
