Come gather 'round me, comrades,
and listen while I hum,
I'll sing to you a little song
while I'm here in town;
I arrived up here not long ago,
around half past four,
The place isn't strange to me
'cause we've been here before.

When the day's work is over,
that's when we'll have fun,
Boys and girls they dress up,
that's the style in town;
Keep your badges shining,
comb your hair flat down,
Soon the girls'll be strolling
out around in town.

Sherlock he looks happy
strollin' 'round in town,
But I guess he's wishing
he was farther down;
Down to good ole Mulligan,
that's where we have good times,
Strolling 'round from house to house
with a girl we all call Vine.

I'll put another in my song,
she's one of my best friends,
She came down here to Mulligan
her holidays to spend;
Look boys, there's a couple,
quick with your flashlight,
Harold wouldn't get her,
if George was here tonight.

When the day's work is over,
that's when we'll have fun,
Boys and girls they dress up,
that's the style in town;
Keep your badges shining,
comb your hair flat down,
Soon the girls'll be strolling
out around in town.

Oh, Herbert, Francis, Bernard,
Stanley, Silas, too,
Including Cyril and myself,
we're the savage crew;
But if you think that is all,
it only makes me smile,
For there's another jolly gang
up to the North West Isles.

I'll put another in my song,
you all know her I bet,
And if you want to know
her name, it is Janet;
She dresses up in dark blue clothes
and wears a dark blue tam,
I just saw her strolling 'round
with a dark-haired man.

When the day's work is over,
that's when we'll have fun,
Boys and girls they dress up,
that's the style in town;
Keep your badges shining,
comb your hair flat down,
Soon the girls'll be strolling
out around in town.
