My Old Man
My old man said ‘Follow the Van’,
And don’t dilly dally, on the way,
Off went the cart with the home packed in it,
I walked behind with my old Cock Linnet.
I dillied and dallied, dallied and dillied,
Lost the can, and don’t know where to roam.
I stopped on the way to have the old halt Quartem,
And I can’t find my way home!
