'Ere Mate

Ere mate can I show you something?
Ere mate have you got the time?
Ere mate don't run away now
If you've got a shilling then you know I'm always willing.

Ere mate can I show you some thing?
Ere mate take a look at mine?
Ere mate don't you go astray now
If you lay your pay down we can find a place to lay down.

Ere mate can I make you happy?
Ere mate give us half a chance
Ere mate come on buy the brandy
Don't you like my figure, ain't no treasure chest that's bigger.

If you will waltz with me
I'll let you talk with me
Even when we do the skip
I'll teach you every thing
And make your old heart sing
So he can dance on your ship.

Ere mate where'd you think you're going?
Ere mate it's my legs I'm showing!
So won't you be the piper who pays,!

Ere mate tell me what's so funny
Ere mate let me see your money
Ere mate can't earn an honest living these days

Ere mate have you got a moment
Ere mate is that's all it takes
Ere mate if you swim the Solent
you can find a mermaid and she's bound to come to your aide

Ere mate are you pleased to see me
Ere mate can I pleasure you
Ere mate shall we find an alley
sure that I can take it if you think that you can make it

Ere mate where do you think you're going
Ere mate it's me legs I'm showin'
Won't you be the piper who pays

Ere mate tell me what's so funny
let me see your money
can't earn an honest living these days
