Lyrics

1
He stands on the doorstep and whistles me out,
His hands in his pockets, his shirt hanging out.

Chorus
But still I love him, can’t deny it,
I’ll be with him wherever he goes.

2
He works at the tannery for ten bob a week,
But when he comes home he’s too drunk to speak.

3
He bought me a handkerchief red, white and blue,
Before I could use it he tore it in two.

4
He took me to pictures and he bought me some nuts,
Before I could eat them they’d gone down his guts.

5
He took me to pub and he bought me a stout,
Before I could drink it he ordered me out.

6
He took me to town and he showed me around,
He bought me some biscuits at a farthing a pound.

7
When I was single I wore a black shawl,
But now that I’m married I wear none at all.
