As I roved out one mornin',
A-way, you roller bowler!
As I roved out one mornin'
I met a dou-dou fair;
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

A-way, you roller bowler!
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

The first time that I met her,
A-way, you roller bowler!
The first time that I met her,
That saucy gal of mine
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

A-way, you roller bowler!
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

She winked an' flipped her flipper,
A-way, you roller bowler!
She winked an' flipped her flipper,
She thought I was a Mate
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

A-way, you roller bowler!
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

But when she found that I was skint,
A-way, you roller bowler!
Well, when she found that I was skint,
She left me standing there
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

A-way, you roller bowler!
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

The last time that I saw her,
A-way, you roller bowler!
The last time that I saw her,
Was down the waterside
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

A-way, you roller bowler!
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

Oh, you ladies short an' ladies tall,
A-way, you roller bowler!
Oh, you ladies short an' ladies tall,
I love you one and all
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!

A-way, you roller bowler!
Timme, hey-rig-a-jig a-jig a ha-ha,
Good morning, ladies all!
