Mussels in the Corner 1. I took Nellie to a ball, Nellie wouldn't dance at all Nailed her up against the wall, Left her there till Sunday. Chorus 'Deed I am in love with you Out all night in the foggy dew 'Deed I am in love with you, Mussels in the corner. 2. Ask a bayman for a smoke, He will say his pipe is broke Ask a bayman for a chew He will bite it off for you. 3. Here they come as thick as flies Dirty shirts and dirty ties Dirty rings around their eyes Dirty old Torbay men. 4. All the people in Belle Isle Don't get up till half past nine Wash their face in kerosene ile Polly, you're a corker! 5. Elsie Murray, she's so fine, Don't get up til half past nine Won't get up to feed the swine Dirty Elsie Murray. 6. Here they come in dirty coats, Baymen in their little boats Wonder that she ever floats Dirty old Torbay men. JB apr96
