I've Got Six Pence Song

 

Lyrics

This is a common scouting song although my scout master added one line that i think is pretty funny.

Six Pence

I've got 6 Pence, jolly, jolly, 6 pence!
I've got 6 pence, to last me all my life!
I've got 2 pence to spend, and 2 pence to lend, and 2 pence to send home to my wife, POOR WIFE!!!
No care's have I to grieve me, no pretty little girls to deceive me.
I'm happy as a lark, believe me, as we go rolling, rolling, home.
Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!) Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!)
By the light of the silvery moooon!
Happy is the day when STAFF GETS PAID!!!
As we go rolling, rolling home.

I've got 4 Pence, jolly, jolly, 4 pence!
I've got 4 pence, to last me all my life!
I've got 2 pence to spend, and 2 pence to lend, and no pence to send home to my wife, POOR WIFE!!!
No care's have I to grieve me, no pretty little girls to deceive me.
I'm happy as a lark, believe me, as we go rolling, rolling, home.
Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!) Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!)
By the light of the silvery moooon!
Happy is the day when STAFF GETS PAID!!!
As we go rolling, rolling home.

I've got 2 Pence, jolly, jolly, 2 pence!
I've got 2 pence, to last me all my life!
I've got 2 pence to spend, and no pence to lend, and no pence to send home to my wife, POOR WIFE!!!
No care's have I to grieve me, no pretty little girls to deceive me.
I'm happy as a lark, believe me, as we go rolling, rolling, home.
Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!) Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!)
By the light of the silvery mooon!
Happy is the day when STAFF GETS PAID!!!
As we go rolling, rolling home.

I've got no Pence, not so jolly, no pence!
I've got no pence, to last me all my life!
I've got no pence to spend, and no pence to lend, and no pence to send home to my wife, POOR WIFE!!!
No care's have I to grieve me, no pretty little girls to deceive me.
I'm happy as a lark, believe me, as we go rolling, rolling, home.
Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!) Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!)
By the light of the silvery moooon!
Happy is the day when STAFF GETS PAID!!!
As we go rolling, rolling home!


I've got Credit, jolly, jolly, Credit!
I've got Credit, to last me all my life!
I've got Credit to spend, and Credit to lend, and Credit, to send home to my wife, POOR WIFE!!!
No care's have I to grieve me, no pretty little girls to deceive me.
I'm happy as a lark, believe me, as we go rolling, rolling, home.
Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!) Rolling home, (ROLLING HOME!)
By the light of the silvery moooon!
Happy is the day when STAFF GETS PAID!!!
As we go rolling, rolling home.
The End
