I Wish They'd Do It Now

Chorus:

I wish they'd do it now, I wish they'd do it now
I'm a little older, I wish they'd do it now

I

I was born of Scottish parents one day when I was young
That's why the Scottish accent is my native tongue
I was a pretty baby, my mother she did vow
The girls all ran to kiss me - I wish they'd do it now

II

At eighteen months, as fine a lad as ever you could see
The ladies loved to dandle me, dance me on their knees
They'd rock me in my cradle if I made a row
They'd run to me and cuddle me - I wish they'd do it now

III

At two years old, as fine a lad as ever could be seen
The girls would all follow me when I went to the green
They'd make a chain of buttercups, place it on my brow
And they'd roll me in the clover - I wish they'd do it now

IV

The girls next door would call for me if the weather it was mild
They'd take me to the river, splash around awhile
They'd throw the water over me, dry me with a towel
Then they'd rub me nice all over - I wish they'd do it now

V

Now I'm a fat folksinger, I live all alone No nagging wife, no noisy kids for me when I get home It's so quiet and so peaceful, I'm better off I think If I can't get the women I can always get a drink

Last Chorus:

And I think I'll get one now, I think I'll get one now
I can always get a drink, I think I'll get one now
