Out in the cold cold snow
I wander alone through the city Not a friend in the world do I know Not a crust, not a bite as I trudge through the night Out in the cold, cold snow.. They think I'm a tramp or a hiker But it's pride that compels me to go Past the homes of the posh through the slush and the slosh Out in the cold, cold snow. Chorus: Out in the cold, cold snow. Out where the cold winds blow No-one to love me and nowhere to go Out in the cold, cold snow. It's all through the bloke that I married When he gambled and spent all the dough Then he slung me, Oh heck, by the back of the neck Out in the cold, cold snow. He left me with one little off-spring Cast your eye on our John Willie Joe Does it seem worth a kiss to be landed like this Out in the cold, cold snow. Chorus: One dark night I jumped in the river For to end all my weal and my woe But I just missed the flood, so I stuck in the mud Out in the cold, cold snow. I've only the rags that I'm wearing All my silks went in pawn long ago But I keep out the wet with my red flanelette Out in the cold, cold snow. Chorus: Last night I was chased by a bandit He took me for the Duchess of Bow 'Where's your town house?' he cried, and to him I replied Out in the cold, cold snow. I don't seek revenge on my 'usband 'Cause to blazes I'm sure he will go Then how glad he would be to change places with me Out in the cold, cold snow. Chorus:
