An English Folk Song

Young Willie went to London town,
Slap me with a slice of beef,
And in the Thames he near did drown,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.

Young Willie found an inn to sleep,
Slap me with a slice of beef,
The rent did cause the lad to weep,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.

Young Willie breathed in lots of smog,
Slap me with a slice of beef,
The food did cause his veins to clog,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.

Young Willie traveled on the road,
Slap me with a slice of beef,
A warlock turned him to a toad,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.

Young Willie found a river clear,
Slap me with a slice of beef,
O mustard wept a knickknack cheer,
O slap me O! an O! of O! O!!!
Adjourn for the evening to allow singers to recover from their inebriation. Continue next evening.
And then I'll be your love.

Young Willie ate a slice of beef,
Slap me with a slice of beef,
That beef was sliced, sliced was that beef,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.

Young Willie sailed the ocean blue,
Slap me with a slice of beef,
He sailed the green and orange, too,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.

Slap me with a slice of beef,
The captain he did shoot, did he,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.

Young Willie faced a cruel judge,
Slap me with a slice of beef,
He sentenced him to shovel sludge,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.

Slap me with a slice of beef,
He fled from justice to Japan,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.

Young Willie died a painful death,
Slap me with a slice of beef,
He took not one more single breath,
O slap me with a slice of beef, O!
And then I'll be your love.
