One day, little Albert Ramsbottom
On young Albert Ramsbottom's birthday
Albert were what you'd call "thwarted".
You've 'eard 'ow young Albert Ramsbottom
Mr. Ramsbottom went to the races,
I'll tell you the story of Balbus,
I'll tell of Canute, King of England,
I'll tell you the tale of an old country pub
Joe Dunn were a bobby for football
I'll tell you a seafaring story,
Henry the Seventh of England
Joe Ramshottom rented a bit of a farm
I'll tell you the story of Jonah,
When Joe Dove took his elephants out on the road
When Sam Small joined the regiment,
It was Christmas Day in the trenches
Henry the first, surnamed " Beauclare,"
Richard the First, Coeur de Lion,
Sam Small had retired from the Army,
It was Christmas Day in the trenches
When Sam Small retired from the Army
One evening at dusk as Noah stood on his Ark,
I'll tell of the Battle of Hastings,
It were after the Battle of Crecy,
Would you hear a wild tale of adventure
You've heard of King Henry II
On Jubilee Day the Ramsbottoms
There's a famous seaside place called Blackpool,
I'll tell of the Magna Charter
The day after Christmas, young Albert
You've 'eard 'ow young Albert Ramsbottom,
On the banks of the Mersey, o'er on Cheshire side,
I'll tell you an old-fashioned story
'Twere getting dusk, one winter's night,
The reign of King William the Second
