SOA Lyrics

 

"Itches in Me Britches"

Traditional


Verse:

I was born of Geordy parents one day when I was young
That's how the Geordy dialect became my native tongue
That I was a pretty baby, my mother she would vow
The girls all ran to kiss me then, I wish they'd do it now

Chorus:

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
Verse:
Well when I was  just a baby, the girls would handle me
They'd clutch me to their bosoms and they'd bounce me on their knees
They’d rock me in the cradle and if I make a row
They'd tickle me, they'd cuddle me, I wish they'd do it now
Verse:
At three years old as fine a lad as ever could be seen
The girls all loved to follow me right down to the green
They'd make a chain of buttercups and drop it on my brow
Then they'd roll me in the clover, well I wish they'd do it now
