The Decemberists - The Chimbley Sweep Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I am a chimbley, a chimbley sweep
  • No bed to lie, no shoes to hold my feet
  • Upon the rooftops in dead of night
  • You'll hear me cry, I'll shake you from your sleep
  • To hear me weep
  • "Your day will come indeed
  • For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  • A chimbley, chimbley sweep."
  • I am an orphan, an orphan boy
  • I've known no love, I've seen no mother's joy
  • A dirty doorstep my cradle laid
  • My fortune's made, I'll shake you from your sleep
  • To hear me weep
  • "Your day will come indeed
  • For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  • A chimbley, chimbley sweep."
  • "O lonely urchin!" the widow cried,
  • "I've not been swept since the day my husband died."
  • Her cheeks are blushing, her legs laid bare
  • And shipwrecked there, I'll shake you from your sleep
  • To hear me weep
  • "Your day will come indeed
  • For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  • A chimbley, chimbley sweep."
  • For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  • A chimbley, chimbley sweep
