German Clockwinder (the)

A German clockwinder to Dublin once came
Benjamin Fookes was the old German's name
and as he winded he way up the strand
he played on his flute and the music was grand

singin' too ra lumma too ra loor a lumma too ra lum lie
singin' too ra lumma too ra loor a lumma too ra lum lie

There once was a lady from Grovesner's square
she said that her clock was in need of repair
in walked the bold German and to her delight
in five minutes flat he make her clock right CHORUS

Now as they lie there down on the floor
there came a very big knock at the door
in came her husband
and great was his shock
for to see that the German had wound his wife's clock CHORUS

The husband said, "Now you look here Mary Anne"
"I don't want that bold German in here again"
"He wound up your clock you left mine on the shelf"
"If your old clock needs windin' sure I'll wind it myself!" CHORUS
