There is a lot of jolly dogs,
I've lately come across;
They are good for any mortal game,
From a MILL to PITCH and TOSS.
Chorus: And they are always so jolly, oh! so jolly, oh! so jolly, oh!
They always are so jolly, oh! wherever they may be;
They dance, they sing, they laugh, ah, ah! they laugh, they sing, what jolly dogs are we!
Fal la la, fal la la, fal la la, fal la la, fal la la, fal la la,
Fal la de ral, de ral, lal li da;
Slap, bang, here we are again, here they again,
Slap, bang, here we come again, such jolly dogs are we!
At six o'clock, we meet each night,
And, of course, sit down to dine;
We put the dinner out of sight,
And then we take our wine.
At eight o'clock, we walk about,
Because, you know, it's dark.
Follow my leader! cries the chief,
To-night we'll have a lark!
To Madame Bell's, of course, they go,
And each man blows his weed;
They stick up for one another,
As they always do agree.
Then, to Green-Street they do adjourn,
To have a bit of fun;
They always get so jolly tight,
Going the Whole hog or none!
Spring-heel Jack, and all his pals,
With their nocturnal larks,
I'm sure were not a patch upon
This lot of modern sparks.
