|9(Chorus)9| A Norwegian cameloldº cod.

He is, begod.2|

Lift it, Hosty, lift it, ye devil ye! Upº with the rann,º the rhyming rann!

It was during some freshwaterº garden pumping
Or, according to the |2Newsletter Nursing Mirror2|, while admiring the monkeys
That our heavyweight heathen |3Humphrey Humpharey3|
Made bold a maid to woo.º

|9(Chorus)9| And he |3A maid he would woo (7Hoo Woohoo7), what'll she doo!3|

|3And wooed her too (7She The general7) lost her maidenloo!3|
{f39, 47}

He ought to blush for himself, the old |3hayhaired hayheaded3| philosopher,º
(7To For to7) go and shove himself that way on top of her.º
Begob, he's the crux of the catalogue
Of our |3pathological antediluvial3| zoo,

|9(Chorus)9| |3Our illogical zoo. Messrs Billing and Coo.3|

|3Who woos in the zoo? Noah's larks, good as noo.3|

He was |2jaunting joulting2| |3beyond by the by Wellinton's3| monument
Our (7rotarian rotorious7) |3hippopotamus (7hippopotamuns hippopopotamuns7)3|
{f10, 38}
When some bugger let down the |2backdoor backtrap2| of the omnibus
And he caught his death of fusiliers,

|9(Chorus)9| |3His death of fusiliers. With his rent in his rears.3|

Give him six years.

'Tis sore pity for his |5two innocent5| poor children
But look out for his missus legitimate!º
When that frew gets a grip of old Earwicker
Won't there be earwigs on the green?º

|9(Chorus)9| Big earwigs on the green,

|3All over the green? The largest ever youº seen.3|

|9Suffoclose! Shikespower! Seudodanto! Anonymoses!9|

Then we'll have a free trade (7Gaels'7) band and mass meeting
For to sod the brave son of |5Scandinavia Scandiknaveryº5|
And we'll bury him down in Oxmanstown
Along with the devil and Danes,

|9(Chorus)9| With the (7devil and deaf and dumb7) Danes,

|2Devil's own Danes. And all their remains.2|

And not all the king's men nor his horses
Will resurrect his corpus
For there's no true spell |2between Connacht and hell in Connacht or hell2|

|9(bis)9| That's able to raise a Cain.
