Lyrics

When I went to school I was such a damned fool
The master unto me would say
You are a bad boy the whole school you annoy
Because you don’t get your own way
He gave me a sum I never had done
Or one I never could do
You wee silly ass you’re the worst in the class
For everyone does it but you

Chorus
Everyone does it but my dear lad
Everyone does it but you
And I’ll be to blame if you don’t do the same
For everyone does it but you

I went to a party a short time ago
A fine Christmas party it was
The ladies there were numbered so fair
That I got enchanted by all
Says old Mr Paul to old Mrs Doll
I have got kisses from you
When up came a damsel and smiled in my face
Saying everyone does it but you

Chorus

I went to a party not very long ago
The same wee damsel I met
I made bold to ask her would she be my wife
The answer I’ll never forget
She told me to go ask her aul dad
And ma that I never knew
Oh yes they said don’t worry my lad
For no one would ask her but you

Chorus

Twelve months we are wed the time it has fled
But still there’s no sign of an heir
My wife no doubt wonders what I’m about
Sometimes she goes in despair
She says cousin Kate has already got eight
And your cousin Mary’s got two
And I’ll hold you to blame if you don’t do the same
For everyone does it but you

Chorus
