Mussels in the Corner

Mussels in the Corner

1. I took Nellie to a ball,
Nellie wouldn't dance at all
Nailed her up against the wall,
Left her there till Sunday.

'Deed I am in love with you
Out all night in the foggy dew
'Deed I am in love with you,
Mussels in the corner.

2. Ask a bayman for a smoke,
He will say his pipe is broke
Ask a bayman for a chew
He will bite it off for you.

3. Here they come as thick as flies
Dirty shirts and dirty ties
Dirty rings around their eyes
Dirty old Torbay men.

4. All the people in Belle Isle
Don't get up till half past nine
Wash their face in kerosene ile
Polly, you're a corker!

5. Elsie Murray, she's so fine,
Don't get up til half past nine
Won't get up to feed the swine
Dirty Elsie Murray.

6. Here they come in dirty coats,
Baymen in their little boats
Wonder that she ever floats
Dirty old Torbay men.
