Letra Jake The Peg

[chorus:]
i'm jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
with my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
wherever i go through rain and snow
the people always let me know
there's jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
with his extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle
The day that i born (oh boy) my father nearly died
he couldn't get my nappies on, how matter how he tried
'cos i was born with an extra leg, and since that day begun
i had to learn to stand on my own three feet
believe me that's no fun
[chorus]
I had a dreadful childhood really, i s'pose i shouldn't moan
each time they had a three legged race, i won it on me own
and also i got popular, when came the time for cricket
they used to roll my trousers up
and use me for the wicket
[chorus]
I was a dreadful scholar, i found all the lessons hard
the only thing i knew for sure, was three feet make a yard
to count to ten i used me fingers, if i needed more
by getting my shoes and socks off
i could count to twenty four
I'm jake the [stops to count]
...to twenty five
I'm jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
with my extra leg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
whatever i did they said was false
they said "quick march" i did the quick waltz
then they shouted at me "put your best foot forward" - but which foot?
i said "it's very fine for you, you only got a choice of two"
but me, i'm jake the peg, diddle-iddle-iddle-um
with the extra leg... diddle-iddle-iddle-um
