It’s of a Row to You I'll Show

It’s of a row to you I’ll show, song / Eddie Butcher, singing in English

It’s of a row to you I’ll show, song / Eddie Butcher, singing in English

It’s of a row to you I’ll show
Down in the kitchen here below

To tell you the truth what begun the fray
The broom stood in the dishcloth’s way

The dishcloth said it was not fair
And told the broom to not stand there

The tongs got up by the fireside
Got up on their long legs and cried

And called to the broom to quieten down
Or he would have to leave the room

The dishcloth then began to wash
And through the water it did splash.
