Bedlam Bards - Bell Bottom Trousers Lyrics

  • I was a serving maid down in Drury Lane,
  • Me master he was good to me, me mistress was the same.
  • When along came a sailor on shore on liberty,
  • And oh, to me woe, he took liberties with me.
  • Chorus
  • Singing bell-bottom trousers, coats of navy blue,
  • Let him climb the rigging, like his daddy used to do.
  • It was at a ball I met him, he asked me for to dance,
  • I knowed he was a sailor by the way he wore his pants,
  • His shoes were neatly polished, his hair was neatly combed,
  • And when the ball was over, he asked to see me home.
  • Instrumental
  • He asked me for a handkerchief to tie around his head,
  • He asked me for a candle to light his way to bed.
  • I, a foolish maiden, not thinking it no harm,
  • I jumped into the sailor's bed to keep the sailor warm.
  • Chorus
  • I knowed he was no Samson, but that night we went to town,
  • He laid me on the bed there till me blue eyes turned to brown.
  • And early the next morning, before the break of day,
  • A twelve-pound note he gave to me, these warning words did say.
  • He said, "Take this, me darling, for the damage I have done,
  • For you may have a daughter, or you may have a son.
  • Well, if you have a daughter, then jounce her on your knee,
  • And if you have a son, well send the bastard out to sea."
  • Chorus
  • Now listen all you maidens to me girlish plea,
  • Don't ever let a sailor get his hand above your knee.
  • Oh, I trusted one once, and he put out to sea,
  • And left me with a daughter for to bounce upon me knee.
