Well, you went for a walk, sir? No, sir, no.
Well, he did, did he not, sir? Aye, sir, aye.
You dare not deny, sir? No, sir, no.

Oh, the one says: "Aye" and the other says: "No."
We are three jolly boys all in a row;
In a row, in a row, in a row, in a row,
We are three jolly boys all in a row.

Well, you met a fair maiden, sir? No, sir, no.
Well, he did, did he not, sir? Aye, sir, aye.
You dare not deny, sir? No, sir, no.

For the one says: "Aye" and the other says: "No."
We are three jolly boys all in a row;
In a row, in a row, in a row, in a row,
We are three jolly boys all in a row.

Well, you took her straight home, sir? No, sir, no.
Well, he did, did he not, sir? Aye, sir, aye.
You dare not deny, sir? No, sir, no.

Oh, the one says: "Aye" and the other says: "No."
We are three jolly boys all in a row;
In a row, in a row, in a row, in a row,
We are three jolly boys all in a row.

Well, she's havin' your baby, sir? No, sir, no.
Well, he is, is he not, sir? Aye, sir, aye.
You can't deny that, sir? No, sir, no.

Oh, the one says: "Aye" and the other says: "No."
We are three jolly boys all in a row;
In a row, in a row, in a row, in a row,
We are three jolly boys all in a row.

Well, you'll walk down the aisle, sir? No, sir, no.
Ah, her pa said he will, sir? Aye, sir, aye.
You can't deny that, sir? No, sir, no.

Oh, the one says: "Aye" and the other says: "No."
We are three jolly boys all in a row;
In a row, in a row, in a row, in a row,
We are three jolly boys all in a row.

Well, you'll buy drinks 'round, sir? No, sir, no.
How about, you do the same, sir? No, sir, no.
[Spoken] Not the teeniest tot, b'ys?
No, sir, no.

Well, the one says: "No" and the other says: "No."
We are three thirsty boys all in a row;
In a row, in a row, in a row, in a row,
If no one will treat us, then we'll have to go.
