Album: Since Time Immoral – Artist: The Kipper Family

As I was a walkin’ along the seaside
Along the shore at Overstrand
I met with a body washed up by the tide
Along the shore a long time ago

I took him to Southrepps, the place he was born
And straightway to Northrepps, the place he was known

I emptied his bowels and pulled out his feet
And garnished him over with parsley so sweet.

I pulled out his toenails and likewise his teeth
And sent them to Knapton wrapped up in a leaf

I poked out his eye with a rusty old nail
And emptied his giblets out into a pail

I cut off his legs and likewise his arms
And then I chopped off all his masculine charms

I pulled out his liver, his kidneys as well
Because he was dead, as best I could tell
