Lankum – Father Had A Knife Lyrics

So its father had a knife, mother had a fork
Sister had a bottle and brother had the cork,
We got a cut from the knife, a dig from the fork,
A sup from the bottle and he’s gone and lost the cork
So the longer we go on, the merrier we will be,
We do belong to a boozing family. So the longer we go on, the merrier we will be,
We do belong to a boozing family. And its father had a lice, mother had a flea,
Sister had a cup, and brother had the tea. And its father had a pig, mother had a cow,
Sister had a rabbit and brother had an owl,
We got some pork from the pig, some milk from the cow,
Some sport from the rabbit and a whistle from Johnny’s owl
So the longer we go on, the merrier we will be,
We do belong to a boozing family. We got some scratches from the jub, some bites from the flea,
A drink from the cup and he’s gone and lost the tea.
