Rattle on the Stovepipe cho: Rattle on the stovepipe, bootjack, Jew's harp Rattle on the stovepipe, bootjack, Joe! Rattle on the stovepipe, bootjack, Jew's harp Rattle on the stovepipe, bootjack, Joe! She was kissing, I was wishing Didn't know what she was about, Robbed me of my gold and silver Then she kicked me, threw me out. Blue it is a pretty color B'fore it gets the second dip, Young boys when they go a-courting Very often get the slip. Ripest apples soon grow rotten Hottest love will soon grow old, Pretty fair maids are soon forgotten Pray, young man, don't be so bold. Deepest water running swiftly, Birds a-flying through the air, Kiss a young man, go a-courting Kind sir, I don't have a care. From Folk Songs of Canada, Fowkes and Johnston RG
