Freddie's Tune

Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i Hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-all day
(repeat 3 more times)

I remember times not long ago when outport life was nice and slow
My uncle, he would sometimes sing a tune while he did work
It had an upbeat tune you know for he was always on the go
His voice was clear and it did ring Hi-di-diddle-do-day

Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i Hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-all day
(repeat 1 more time)

He sometimes winked and laughed a bit and oh how I remember it
His song brings back such memories from somewhere long ago
When I go back for visits now I still and remember how
With shovel and pick he'd laugh and sing Hi-di-diddle-do-day

Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i Hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-all day
(repeat 1 more time)

So Freddie here's a tune for you - a man who's never been down or blue
You left me something long ago when you worked and sang your song
I still remember afternoons I tried to sing your crazy tune
But I could never copy you and your Hi-di-diddle-do-day

Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i Hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-all day
(repeat until the cows come home!)
