THE OLD RED LION
 
div
 
Now just to keep the missis and the kids in grub
I saved up me money and I went and bought a pub
Name of the pub is The Old Red Lion
Folks call there for Auld Lang Syne
So next time you're in the neighbourhood
Whether you're short or tall
You'll be as welcome as the flowers in May
If you'll only give a call at...

Chorus 1: The Old Red Lion, pop into the Old Red Lion
There you'll find me behind the bar
Swaggering about with a fat cigar
Barmaids there - young and fair
Sort to keep your eye on
Don't have a tiddley at the fountain friend
Pop into the Old Red Lion.


Chorus 2: The Old Red Lion, pop into the Old Red Lion
There you'll find me behind the bazaar
Swaggering about with a fat cigar
Barmaids there - dark and fair
Sort to keep your eye on
Don't have a tiddley at the fountain
Pop into the Old Red Lion.
