With my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
The people always let me know
With his extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle
The day that I born (oh boy) my father nearly died
'cause I was born with an extra leg, and since that day begun
Believe me that's no fun
I had a dreadful childhood really, I s'pose I shouldn't moan
And also I got popular, when came the time for cricket
And use me for the wicket
I was a dreadful scholar, I found all the lessons hard
To count to ten I used me fingers, if I needed more
I could count to twenty four
I'm Jake the [stops to count]
...to twenty five
I'm Jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
Whatever I did they said was false
Then they shouted at me "put your best foot forward" - but which foot?
But me, I'm Jake the Peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
