lyrics

I was born of Jordy parents,
I was their favorite son.
That Southern Squire and his wife gave me their native tongue
That I was a pretty baby me mother she would vow
The girls all ran to kiss me then:
I wish they'd do it now.

Oh, I wish they'd do it now.
Oh, I wish they'd do it now.
I've got itches in me britches
and I wish they'd do it now.

Well, when I was only one year old
the girls would handle me
They'd clutch me to their bossoms
and they'd bonce me on their knee
They would rock me in the cradle
and if I made a rau
They'd tickle me, they'd cuddle me-
I wish they'd do it now.

(Chorus)

Well, at 10 years old a finer lad never could be seen
The girls all liked to follow me
right down to the green
They would make a chain of buttercups
and drop it on me brow
Then they'd roll me in the clover
Well, I wish they'd do it now.

(Chorus)


Well, the eastern girls would call for me
to swim when it was mild
Down to the river we would go
and splash about a while
They would through the water over me
and dunk me like a sow
Then they'd rub me nice all over,
Well, I wish they'd do it now.

(Chorus)

Now twenty years have come and gone,
and I am in my prime.
I’m takin’ matters in me hand,
ain’t wastin’ no more time.
I’ll go down to the dock tonight,
give Maggie May my vow:
Her services for fifty quid.
I wish I didn’t now!

Oh I wish I didn’t now.
Oh I wish I didn’t now.
I’ve got itches in me britches
And I wish I didn’t now.

Oh I wish I didn’t now.
Oh I wish I didn’t now.
I’ve got itches in me britches
And I wish I didn’t now.
