Thread Name: Lyr Req: You dirty little nipper . . .
Subject: Lyr Req: You dirty little nipper . . .
For years I have found words, melodies, chords, histories, tales, songs, origins of the aforementioned etc., for people. Now I need your help.

I always loved songs that either had a snap or a purpose. So, here is my question.

I recall a song from my youth--I grew up in a less-than-enviable district in one of the tougher cities on this planet--that went as follows:

"Oh you dirty little nipper does your mother know you're out
With your hands in your pockets and your pork sticking out . . .

It was sung by a chorus of 12-year-olds to the tune of Continental Soldier, but it was a different set of words. Most of our granddads or dads had either come back from the war (WWII) or not. Mine did--I was lucky.

Does anyone know the rest of that two-liner?

Thank you for any help you might offer.
