Is this it Dai?

JOHN WILLIE'S FERRET

I was there, so were you
The mayor and the vicar, all the council too
with their wives and ladies on full view
the night John Willie took his ferret to a do.

He slipped his lead with some butter from the sauce
he patterned all the table with his dirty little paws
oh said the vicars wife, this rabbit isn't dead
as he danced a little jig around the hat upon her head

oh I was there, so were you
The mayor and the vicar, all the council too
with their wives and ladies on full view
the night John Willie took his ferret to a do.

He ran down her collar and down her front he tore
he wriggled down her knicker leg and danced upon the floor
oh said the vicar, thats a sewer rat I'm sure
well if thats the case his wife replied, I wish we had some more

oh I was there, so were you
The mayor and the vicar, all the council too
with their wives and ladies on full view
the night John Willie took his ferret to a do.

He ran through the soup and he nibbled at the peas
he dribbled all the gravy down the mayors knocking knees
and then he quenched his ferret's thirst with half a pint of shandy
and then relieved his little self in Mrs Brierly's brandy

oh I was there, so were you
The mayor and the vicar, all the council too
with their wives and ladies on full view
the night John Willie took his ferret to a do.

Well the ladies left their tables and began to dance with fright
they shouted out in panic at the little ferrets sight<
he nibbled at their stockings and he tickled all their knees
and the vicars wife kept shouting give me some of that please

oh I was there, so were you
The mayor and the vicar, all the council too
with their wives and ladies on full view
the night John Willie took his ferret to a do.

He ran up and down the curtains and he swam about the punch
he herded all the ladies in a corner in a bunch
and just to end the escapade he did a little quicky
he ran up the speakers dinner suit and nibbled at his collar

oh I was there, so were you
The mayor and the vicar, all the council too
with their wives and ladies on full view
the night John Willie took his ferret to a do.

Well they caught the little fella and they put him in a box
they give him anaesthetic from the vicars wooly socks
they sang him Annie Laurie in the mayors own car and then
they got him back as fast as hell to John Willie's pen

oh I was there, so were you
The mayor and the vicar, all the council too
with their wives and ladies on full view
the night John Willie took his ferret to a do.


best wishes, Yvonne
