GUEST,SteveG Lyr Req: They Wouldn't Do It Now (24) RE: Lyr Req: They Wouldn't Do It Now 28 Jan 12

Here's a version I recorded from Jack Breckon of Esk Valley N Yorks in 1969.

I was born in Tipperary when I was quite young,
That's the reason I suppose there's blarney on my tongue,
I was the picture of me daddy all the doctors did allow
And the girls all ran to kiss me but the' doesn't do it now.
   Oh the' doesn't do it now, oh, the' doesn't do it now
   And the girls etc....

Now my daddy he sent me to school to learn my ABC;
the little girls in my class they would not let me be,
They'd stick pins in my britches and of course I made a row,
And the gaffer he would work me but he doesn't do it now.

Now the'd take me out to bathing when the weather it was fine,
I'd run and jump and skip about like little shrimps at swine (in brine?)
I'd spalsh the water until it shone like pearls upon my brow
And they'd tickle me so funny but the' doesn't do it now.
