Ah, Tom is young and Tom is bold
Tom is as bold as the knights of old
But whenever he gets in a bit of a jam
There's nothing he won't do to get a Harry rag

Harry rag, Harry rag
Do anything just to get a Harry rag
And he curses himself for the life he's led
And rolls himself a Harry rag and puts himself to bed

Ah, Tom's old ma is a dying lass
Soon they all reckon she'll be pushing up the grass
And her bones might ache and her skin might sag
But still she's got the strength to have a Harry rag

Harry rag, Harry rag
Do anything just to get a Harry rag
And she curses herself for the life she's led
And rolls herself a Harry rag and puts herself to bed

Ah, bless you tax man, bless you all
You may take some but you never take it all
But if I give it all, I won't feel sad
As long as I got enough to buy a harry rag

Harry rag, Harry rag
Do anything just to get a harry rag
And I curse myself for the life I've led
And roll myself a Harry rag and put myself to bed

Ah, the smart young ladies of the land
Can't relax without a Harry in their hand
And they light one and they boast and brag
So content because they got a Harry rag

Harry rag, Harry rag
Do anything just to get a Harry rag
And they'll light one and they'll boast and brag
So content because they got a Harry rag

Harry rag, Harry rag
I'll do anything just to get a Harry rag
And I curse myself for the life I've led
And roll myself a Harry rag and put myself to bed
