Info: LYRICS:
1. At the age of twenty one I being in the prime of life

My mammy says unto me I should go out and get a wife

For to get a wife I knew nothing about the bother

At the same time I was itching for the one thing or the other

And it’s whack a rowdy dow now fal all the daddy

And it’s whack a rowdy dow now fal all the day.

2. And it’s when I got her I didnae know what to say

I threw my arms around her all in a gentle way

Says she you like my sister no says I you like my brother

At the same time I was itching for the one thing or the other

With my whack a rowdy dow now fal all the daddy

And it’s whack a rowdy dow now fal all the day.

3. Oh some people say they think it is very queer

Other people say I’m going to have an heir

A boy cried the one it’s a girl cried the other

I’ll be very well contented with the one thing or the other

With my whack a rowdy dow now fal all the daddy

And it’s whack a rowdy dow now fal all the day.

4. It was on a Monday morning just as my story’s run

It was on a Monday morning my wife she brought me twins

You know that Monday morning my joy I could not smother

I went shouting out about the town it’s the one thing and the other

With my whack a rowdy dow now fal all the daddy

And it’s whack a rowdy dow now fal all the day.

5. Well now my story’s ended I mean but little bad

And as it isn’t any harm I hope you won’t be sad

And if you give more applause I’ll surely sing another

At the same thing I’ll be there whether it’s the one thing or the other

With my whack a rowdy dow now fal all the daddy

And it’s whack a rowdy dow now fal all the day.
