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 idoo
With me intwing of an ingthing of an iday
With me roo boo boo roo boo boo randy
And me lode 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

With me intwing of an ingthing of an idoo
With me intwing of an ingthing of an iday
With me roo boo boo roo boo boo randy
And me lode stone keeps beating away

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

With me intwing of an ingthing of an idoo
With me intwing of an ingthing of an iday
With me roo boo boo roo boo boo randy
And me lode stone keeps beating away

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

With me intwing of an ingthing of an idoo
With me intwing of an ingthing of an iday
With me roo boo boo roo boo boo randy
And me lode stone keeps beating away

It was early one fine summer's morning
A little before it was day
I dipped her three times in the river
And carelessly bade her "Good day"

With me intwing of an ingthing of an idoo
With me intwing of an ingthing of an iday
With me roo boo boo roo boo boo randy
And me lode stone keeps beating away
That my heart is breaking forever
