about

For Gramps.

I learnt this one from the first Waterson:Carthy album. The words are changed a little.

lyrics

You mariners all as you pass by
Come in and drink when you are dry
Come spend, my lads, your money brisk
And pop your nose in a jug of this

You tipplers all as you pass by
Come in and drink when you are dry
Come spend, my lads, your money brisk
And pop your nose in a jug of this

You tipplers all if you've half a crown
You're welcome all for to sit down
Come smoke a pipe and think not amiss
To pop your nose in a jug of this

Now I am old and can scarcely crawl
I've a grey beard and my head is bald
Crown my desire, fulfil my bliss
A pretty wife and a jug of this

And when I'm in my grave and dead
And all my sorrows and past and fled
Transform me then into a fish
And let me swim in a jug of this
