MAFEKIN' NIGHT
 
div
 
I was walkin' long o' Lizer,
Thought it was wiser,
'Cos they eye's her
I'd took 'er for an outin',
Sez she's poutin'
'Wots that shoutin'?'
A cove 'e starts a-ollerin',
Crowds a follerin',
Flags a-collerin'
A cheerin' all the way.
'Baden-Powell Bobs 'ooray,
An' Bravo Dublin Fusiliers'

Chorus: Wot oh we cried On Mafekin' night, On Mafekin' night
Wot oh! Outside! On Mafekin' night, on Mafekin' night.
We all be'aved, although we raved, an' the old flag waved
The moke on his back wore a Union Jack, an Pa 'ad his whiskers shaved
Wot oh! we cried On Mafekin' night, on Mafekin' night
Wot oh! Outside! On Mafekin' night, on Mafekin' night.
We all be'aved, although we raved, an' the old flag waved
The moke on his back wore a Union Jack, an Pa 'ad his whiskers shaved.


Then someone started pitchin' 'er
Yarns of Kitchener
Quite bewitchin' 'er
The moke begins a-rearin'
Makes a clearin'
Through the cheerin'
'E takes us in 'is silly way
Piccadilly way
'Tain't a 'illy way
We makes in the dark
For a mansion near the Park
With a cheer for 'Good old Baden-Powell..'

Chorus:

We turns the donkey's noodle 'ome
Sayin', 'Toddle 'ome'
'E would waddle 'ome
It weren't no good a-tryin' force
'E'd 'ave cheered of course
But the moke was 'oarse
Then as 'e nears the Lambeth Road
With a 'eavy load
'E distinctly showed
If 'e could only speak
'E'd be shouting all the week.

Chorus:
