DARE DEVIL DICK
 
div
 
You've heard of Dick Turpin and bold Robin Hood
I'm known as one of the click
A bit of a gangster a terror to all
The lads call me Dare Devil Dick
I'm fond of a fight, over fighting, I gloat
I'm always the first to hold anyone's coat
Dare Devil Dick up to every trick
Dare Devil Dick that's me.

Only last week without saying a word
I travelled first class when my ticket was third
I'm a demon, I'm devil may care, full of villainy
Full fare on me ticket they soon made me pay
But I got me own back the very next day
I bought two first class tickets and walked all the way
Dare Devil Dick that's me.

Dare Devil Dick up to every trick
Dare Devil Dick that's me
With a girl on a raft I was wrecked on the seas
I was in a short shirt, she wore a chemise
'Hoist a signal' soon she started to shout
'And save us from the sea'
I took off my shirt 'They won't see that' she raved
So I grabbed her chemise , on the mast it soon waved
When she smiled, I said 'Gee I don't want to be saved'
Dare Devil Dick that's me.

Dare Devil Dick up to every trick
Dare Devil Dick that's me
For a picnic I went with my sweetie one day
We romped in the fields and we sat in the hay
It was lovely till she cried in alarm
'There's a bumble bee.
Oh, be brave and find it.' I shouted out, 'Where?'
She said 'Where I'm sitting, it's underneath there'
I got stung on the hand, ah but I didn't care
Dare Devil Dick that's me.
