English

I went into a public house last night
And I asked the barwoman for credit
She said to me, "You won't get a drop
Hit the road and go home"

Chorus:
It is not yet the day, nor the day
It's not yet day and it won't be 'til morning
It is not yet the day, nor the day
A high light is in the moon

I put my hand in my pocket
And I asked for the change of a shilling
She said to me, "Sit down at the table
And drink here until the morning"

(Chorus)

Rise up, man of the house
Put on your trousers and your hat
'Til you keep music with the good person
Who'll be drinking here until morning"

(Chorus)

Rise up, man of the house
Put on your trousers and your hat
'Til you keep music with the good person
Who'll be drinking here until morning"

(Chorus...)
