The Cluster of Nuts

Lidové písně - Anglické



A wealthy merchant man.
He had a handsome prentice boy
As ever the sun shone on,
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

He was proper tall and handsome
And everything being right
Said he could sleep with a pretty girl
And kiss her twelve times a night
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

His mistress being standing by
And hearing him say so, She says,
Jack I'll hold a wager that
You don't perform it so
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

Five pounds is the wager
And twelve times is the bet
And I myself will be the judge
When we are both in bed
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

His master being from home that night
And everything being right
He slipped into bed to his mistress
Ans kissed her twelve times that night
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

One of them being drowsy, which
There was no virtue in, it
Caused his mistress for to say,
The wager I did win
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

If I didn't win the wager,
As I suppose you'd like,
I'll leave it to my master
When he comes home at night
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

Be off, you saucy fellow,
Would you let your master know ?
Indeed upon my honour, ma'am,
I do intend it so
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

When his master came home that night
And at his table sat,
Says Jack unto his master,
Sir, I'm like to lose a bet,
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

As your wife and I was walking
Down by the greenwood side,
And I upon your mare's back,
A cluster of nuts I spied,
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

I said there were twelve of them,
She said there were eleven,
Then I shoved them in her apron
And there were five and seven,
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

Five and seven is a dozen,
As I've heard people say,
So Jack you won the wager, and
Your mistress must you pay,
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

His mistress being standing by
And hearing him say so,
She clinked down the wager, and
Was glad to get off, you know,
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o

When his master is from home
She continually stuffs his guts
And she claps him on the shoulder, saying
Jack remember the nuts !
Singing
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
 Fal de lal, Lal de ral, Li gee o
