Rattle on the Stovepipe

cho: Rattle on the stovepipe, bootjack, Jew's harp
     Rattle on the stovepipe, bootjack, Joe!
     Rattle on the stovepipe, bootjack, Jew's harp
     Rattle on the stovepipe, bootjack, Joe!

She was kissing, I was wishing
Didn't know what she was about,
Robbed me of my gold and silver
Then she kicked me, threw me out.

Blue it is a pretty color
B'fore it gets the second dip,
Young boys when they go a-courting
Very often get the slip.

Ripest apples soon grow rotten
Hottest love will soon grow old,
Pretty fair maids are soon forgotten
Pray, young man, don't be so bold.

Deepest water running swiftly,
Birds a-flying through the air,
Kiss a young man, go a-courting
Kind sir, I don't have a care.
