Don’t Dilly Dally on the Way
My old man said, “Follow the van, don’t dilly dally on the way!”
Off went the cart with the home packed in it,
I walked behind with me old cock linnet.
But I dillied and dallied, dallied and dillied,
Lost the van and don’t know where to roam.
You can’t trust the specials like the old-time ‘coppers’
When you can’t find your way home.
