"Twiddles"

When the boats all get to sailing
and the men are off and gone
What about the women
who are up and left alone?
Do you think they sit and twiddle thumbs
until their men come home?
Oh there’s other things to twiddle
when a girl’s left on her own.

Oh, it’s twiddley ai dee ai dee o,
twiddley ai dee ay
Well it’s lots of times a man will leave you
broken with dismay
Oh, it’s twiddley ai dee ai dee o,
twiddley ai dee ay
There’s others willin’ to twiddle
when your man is gone away

I remember Nelly,
she was young and she was gay.
She won the heart of Captain Dan
but then he sailed away.
He left her high and dry
with just a kiss upon the chin
But as his ship went sailing out
another ship sailed in.

And then there was Lucinda Brown
as fair as any maid.
Her true love he went a voyaging,
a sailor man by trade.
"Keep the fire burning, love,"
those were the words he spoke.
So she found herself another man
to keep the fire stoked.

When Lucinda.s man came back
and knocked upon her door
She was as glad to see him
as she’d ever been before.
He left her sleeping in her bed
but Lucy didn’t care
'Course the poor guy in the closet
sure could use a little air.

Oh you hear a lot of stories
'bout the sailors and their sport.
About how every sailor
has a girl in every port.
But if you’d added two and two
you’d figure out right quick
That it’s just because the lassies
have a lad on every ship.

Oh, it’s twiddley ai dee ai dee o,
twiddley ai dee ay
Well it’s lots of times a man will leave you
broken with dismay
Oh, it’s twiddley ai dee ai dee o,
twiddley ai dee ay
There’s others willin’ to twiddle
when your man is gone away

Oh, it’s twiddley ai dee ai dee o,
twiddley ai dee ay
Well it’s lots of times a man will leave you
broken with dismay
Oh, it’s twiddley ai dee ai dee o,
twiddley ai dee ay
There’s other Willie’s willin’ to twiddle
when your Willie’s gone away.

To those mariners courageously sailing waters unknown

Those brave with weeping mothers at home

Sing your song and let it be known

I’ve crossed the line into Neptune’s throne
