W:And they plant themselves down upon the ground W:And each one swore they spend a pound W:And they had glasses all around; W:When Jones' ale was new me boys! W:When Jones' ale was new. W: W:(chorus) W:And they called for more pots more pints and more glasses W:And didn't they all get tight as asses, W:And 0, what fun they had with lasses: W:When Jones' ale was new me boys! When Jones' ale was new. W: W:2 W:Now the first to come in was a tinker W:Good Lord he was no drinker W:Good Lord he was no drinker, W:To join the jolly old crew. W:And he said, "Any pots or kettles to settle W:Me tonges are made of the finest metal. W:Good Lord how his tonges did rattle. W:When Jones' ale was New me boys! When Jones' ale was new. W: W:3 W:Now the next to come in was a mason, W:With his hammer and chisel to face them. W:With his hammer and chisel to face them, W:To join the jolly old crew. W:And his hammer against the brick wall W:And swore that churches and chapels would fall, W:And that would give work to masons all. W:When Jones' ale was new me boys! When Jones' ale was new. W: W:4 W:Now the last to come in was a barber, W:Who swore he came from Scarborough, W:Re swore he came from Scarborough, W:To join the jolly old crew. W:And he flung his old razor against the brick wall W:He swore that babes would shave all, W:And that would give work to barbers all. W:When Jones' ale was new me boys! When Jones' ale was new. % % % % %
