 There is a school of jolly dogs, I've lately come across,
They're game for any mortal thing, from this sparring to pitch and toss.

 And they always seem so jolly, oh! so jolly, oh! so jolly, oh!
 They always seem so jolly, oh! wherever they may be;
 They dance, they sing, they laugh ha, ha, they laugh ha, ha;
 They dance, they sing, what jolly dogs are we.
 Fal la la, fal la la, fal la la, fal la la, fal la la,
 Fal la la, fal de the ral, de the nil lal li do;
 Slap, bang, here we are again, here we are again, here we are again;
 Slap, bang, here we are again, what jolly dogs are we.

They meet each night at six o'clock, and then sit down to dine,
They put the courses out of sight, And then they take their wine.- Chorus.

At eight o'clock they sally forth, because you know it's dark;
"Follow my leader," cries the chief, to-night we'll have a lark.-Chorus.

To balls or hops, of course, they go, and each man does his weed;
 They stick by one another, as they've previously agreed.-Chorus.

Spring-heel Jack and all his pals, with their nocturnal larks,
 I'm sure were not a patch upon this school of modern sparks. -Chorus.
