Liverpool Lullabye

Long Distance

Ah you are a mucky kid
Dirty as a dustbin lid
When he finds out the things you did
You'll get a belt from your dad
Ah you've got your father's nose
So crimson in the dark it glows
If you're not asleep when the boozer's close
You'll get a belt from your dad

You look so scruffy lying there
Strawberry jam tufts in your hair
And in the world you haven't a care
And I have got so many
I'ts quite a struggle every day
Living on your father's pay
The bugger drinks it all away
And leaves me without any

Although we have no silver spoon
Better days are coming soon
Now Nelly's working a the loom
And she get's paid on Friday's
Someday we'll have a bash
When Littlewoods provides the cash
We'll get a house in Nottingash
And get your dad a brewery

Ah you are a mucky kid
Dirty as a dustbin lid
When he finds out the things you did
You'll get a belt from your dad
Ah you've got your father's face
You're growing up a real hard case
But there's no one else can take your place
So go to sleep for mammy
