Subject: RE: Lyr Req: You dirty little nipper . . .
My Irish grandmother and great grandmother (both born in the 1800s in Ireland)
sang the following:

Oh ye dirty little beggar, does your mother know you're out?
With a hole in your pants and your shirt stickin out.
Well, I'll lock ye in a box, and I'll throw away the key.
Fer all the dirty tricks that you pulled on me.
Keep the ol' boy rollin, rolliln down the hill.
And if I don't play it on my ol' banjo.

Tune was Turkey in the Straw ;-)
