The German Clockwinder - Lyrics & Chords


A German clockwinder to  Dublin once came,
Benjamin Fuchs was the  ould German's  name,
And as he was winding his  way round the Strand,
He  played on his flute and the music was  grand.


Singing  Tooralomaloma tooralomaloma  tooraliay
Toorali toorali yourali ay
Tooralomaloma tooralomaloma  tooraliay
Toorali toorali yourali ay

Oh there was a young lady from Grosvenor Square,
Who said that her clock was in need of repair.
In walks the bold German and to her delight,
In less than five minutes he had her clock right.


Now as they were seated down on the floor,
There came this very loud knock on the door.
In walked her husband and great was his shock,
For to see the ould German wind up his wife's clock.


The husband says he 'Now look here, Mary Anne,
Don't let that bould German come in here again.
He wound up your clock and left mine on the shelf,
If your oul' clock needs winding, sure I'll wind it meself!'
