Dick Darby the Cobbler Oh me name is Dick Darby, I'm a cobbler I served me time at the old camp Some call me an old agitator But now I'm resolved to repent With me intwing of an ingthing of an iday With me intwing of an ingthing of an iday With me roo boo boo roo boo boo randy And me lab stone keeps beating away Now my father was hung for sheep stealing Me mother was burned for a witch My sister's a dandy housekeeper And I'm a mechanical switch Ah it's forty long years I have traveled All by the contents of me pack Me hammers, me awls, and me pinches 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 twas day I dipped her three times in the river And carelessly bad her "Good day" SOF
