INTRO

While strolling out the other day to have a quiet walk
And passing by a house I heard, some very noisy talk
Just then a door flew open and an old man tumbled out
I stopped and asked the people what, the bother was about

An angry lad then asked me what it had to do with me
And told me to move on, or he'd quickly let me see

REFRAIN: You've made your poor old mother weep from midnight until morn
You've made your poor old father curse, the day that you were born
You'd wish you'd never served us so, when both are dead, my lad
When your own children strike you like, you've struck your poor old dad

INTRO

Not long the poor old father lived, but soon joined his old bride
Now in the quiet churchyard, they're sleeping side by side
But one day o'er the grave we found the dead son 'neath the trees
And mournfully I thought I heard, these words float on the breeze

REFRAIN: You've made your poor old mother weep from midnight until morn
You've made your poor old father curse, the day that you were born
You'd wish you'd never served us so, when both are dead, my lad
When your own children strike you like, you've struck your poor old dad

REFRAIN: You've made your poor old mother weep from midnight until morn
You've made your poor old father curse, the day that you were born
You'd wish you'd never served us so, when both are dead, my lad
When your own children strike you like, you've struck your poor old dad
