From: Leadfingers

(Wat Nicholl)

For a small brown penny in a slot in the door
You can entertain yourself for an hour or more
For all this entertainment, I am very pleased to say
There's absolutely no entertainment tax to pay.

CHORUS: Musheringum doorum dah,
    Wak fol the derry oh
    Wak fol the derry oh
    The Scriptures on the Wall

For there's jokes and repartee on the walls there writ
By little gents who go there to exercise their wit
Their famous leader, Kilroy by name
He's been everywhere first and so gained his fame

A hundred thousand curses now and evermore
On the swine who wrote at the foot of the door
Whatever it was that you came in here to do
If you're reading this then you've just done it in your shoe

We read on the wall there the story oh so sad
Of the fate that befell a young Scottish lad
On the chain he hung himself and there died broken hearted
It seems the poor lad paid his penny then he only farted.

I wish that I could think of something witty and bright
To write on the wall when I go there tonight
Make dates for my sister and for my old dear
Describe my fathers habits, tell them all the buggers queer

Some they write in pencil, some they write in pen
Some make dates for women and some make dates for men
But some are so industrious, they don't write at all
They're the ones who drill all the holes in the wall.

Written and recorded by the late Wat Nicholl and published in his songbook "What Words What Music Wat Nicholl"
