​Twankydillo

This song is by Maddy Prior and appears on the album Ravenchild (1999) and on the compilation The Acoustic Folk Box (2002).

Here's a health to the jolly blacksmith, the best of all fellows
Who works at his anvil while the boy blows the bellows

Which makes his bright hammer to rise and to fall
Here's to Old Cole and to Young Cole
And to Old Cole of all
Twankydillo, Twankydillo, Twankydillo-dillo-dillo-dillo
And a roaring pair of blow-pipes made from the green willow

Here's a health to the pretty boy, the one I love best
Who kindles a fire all in my own breast

If a gentleman calls his horse to be shoed
He'll make no denial of one pot or two

Here's a health from us all, to our sovereign the Queen
And to all the Royal family, wherever they're seen
