SIX MAGNIFICENT BRICKS.

Myself and some friends once, thinking there'd be no harm.
Went for a walk, a row, arm-in-arm;
The night it was dark, the streets they were very calm,
When we went out for a spree.
Said Jones, Now do what I tell you, boys, hurrah! hurrah'
Louder still, for that isn't half a noise, hurrah! hurrah!
Now we'll strike up the bag-pipes all the way, and let the people see
That we six magnificent bricks have made up our minds for a spree.

Chorus.
Fal de loodle, fal de ral doodle um, argh! argh!
Fal de doodle um, doodle um dey- oight!

Through Leicester Square, Long Acre, and Drury Lane,
Just like jolly cocks, sure enough, on we came;
A lot more fellows all joined in our little game
When we went out for a spree.
Here we stop a minute to bawl hurrah! hurrah!
The others replied at once to the call: hurrah! hurrah!
Then we struck up the bagpipes once again to let the people see
That we six magnificent bricks had made up our minds for a spree. - Chorus.

Going along we went down to a narrow street,
A party of bobbies out marching did chance to meet;
They took us to Bow Street just as a kind of treat.
To heighten the joy of our spree.
But we were determined to keep our pluck, hurrah! hurrah!
So we gave another by way of luck: hurrah! hurrah!
Then we struck up the bag-pipes in our cell to let the bobbies see
That we six magnificent bricks had made up our minds for a spree.- Chorus.

The other chaps locked in the station began to shout;
Inspector he couldn't make what was the row about,
He ordered the bobbies again to turn us out,
And not come in there for a spree.
We were shoved out of the station door, hurrah! hurrah!
So, for joy, we gave just one cheer more: hurrah! hurrah!
So home we went with the bag-pipes to let the people see
That we six magnificent bricks had made up our minds for a spree.-Chorus.
