When I was but a little laddie
My daddy bought a fiddle for me
And the only tune that I could play
Yes the only tune that I could play
Was

Ride your donkey
Nothing for me
Gallop you donkey
In a major key

Deep within his heart
Daddy knowed that I was smart
And the only tune that I could play
Yes the only tune that I could play
