PETER POTTS THE PEELER
 
div
 
I'm Peter Potts, a Peeler brave
And A1 is my number
Your goods and chatels I protect
While quietly you slumber
A 'crusher' some folks do call me
While others call me 'Bobby'
I'd no need to join the force at all
But it always was my hobby

Chorus: After goose and rabbit pie
Down area steps a stealer
Courting cookies on the sly
Goes Peter Potts the Peeler


That all our men a watch can boast
Is quite a matter of course, Sirs
If they don't get one in a month or so
We turn 'em out o' the force, Sirs
And often, too, in their first week
They find a chap 'in liquor'
And it only wants a little cheek
To be master of a 'ticker'

Chorus: After goose and rabbit pie
Down area steps a stealer
Courting cookies on the sly
Goes Peter Potts the Peeler
