Score of Old King Coler
The first three lines are sung for each verse then each character introduced is sung as shown in the second verse so the verses get longer and longer.

Old King Cole was a bugger for his hole,
And a bugger for his hole was old King Cole,
He called for his wife in the middle of the night,
And he called for his fiddlers three.
Now every fiddler had a very fine fiddle,
And a very fine fiddle had he,
Fiddle dee diddle dee diddle dee, said the fiddlers,
Merry merry men are we,
There's none so fair as can compare,
With the boys of the R.F.C.

CHORUS:
How's your father? Alright.
How's your mother? Half tight.
How's your sister? She might.
When was the last time? Last night.
When's the next time? Tonight.

Now every tailor had a very fine needle,

Merry merry men are we,
There's none so fair as can compare,
With the boys of the R.F.C.
