The Crockery Ware

The crockery ware, song / Eddie Butcher, singing in English

The crockery ware, song / Eddie Butcher, singing in English

This young man all in the dark
Was looking for his own sweetheart
When his toe catched on the rail of the chair
And down came all the crockery ware

– Oh madam dear, do me excuse
For I was taken by surprise
I lost my way and I caught in your chair
And I broke my shins on your crockery ware.

Notes from Hugh Shields

Sung continuous with “My love she’s but a lassie” from the Dusty Bluebells Collection to the same air. Shields Index 95.
