My Son John

This song is by The Merry Wives of Windsor and appears on the album Tales From Windsor's Tavern (2007).

My son John was tall and slim
He had a leg for every limb
But now he's got no legs at all
For he run a race with a cannonball
With me roo rum rar, faddle diddle dar
Whack faddlle liddle with me roo rum rar.

Oh were you deaf, were you blind
When you left your two fine legs behind
Or was it sailing on the sea
Lost your two fine legs right down to the knee
With me roo rum rar, faddle diddle dar
Whack faddlle liddle with me roo rum rar.

Oh I was not deaf, I was not blind
When I left my two fine legs behind
Nor was it sailing on the sea,
Lost my two fine legs right down to the knee
With me roo rum rar, faddle diddle dar
Whack faddlle liddle with me roo rum rar.

For I was tall, I was slim
And I had a leg for every limb,
But now I've got no legs at all,
For you can't win a race with a cannonball.
With me roo rum rar, faddle diddle dar
Whack faddlle liddle with me roo rum rar.
