  • I don't know how he does it but he lives like a king
  • and he dallies and he gathers and he plucks and he shines,
  • and when the man dances certainly, boys, what else?
  • The piper pays him! Yes sir, yes sir, yes sir, yes sir,
  • when the man dances, certainly, boys, what else?
  • The piper pays him! Yessssir, Yessssir
  • Charlie
  • But he doesn't know the territory!
