Liverpool Lullaby by Stan Kelly Oh you are a mucky kid, Dirty as a dustbin lid When he finds out the things you did You'll get a belt from your da Oh you have your father's nose So crimson in the dark, it glows If you're not asleep when the boozers close You'll get a belt from your da You look so scruffy lying there Strawberry jam tats in your hair Though in the world you haven't a care And I have got so many It's quite a struggle everyday Living on your father's pay The bugger drinks it all away And leaves me without any Although we have no silver spoon Better days are coming soon Now Nellie's working at the loom And she gets paid on Friday Perhaps one day we'll have a splash When Littlewoods provides the cash We'll get a house in Knotty Ash And buy your dad a brewery Oh you are a mucky kid, Dirty as a dustbin lid When he finds out the things you did You'll get a belt from your da Oh you have your father's face You're growing up a real hard case But there's no one can take your place Go fast asleep for Mammy recorded by Judy Collins on In My Life SOF
