As I cam in by Thankertoon,the rain was fairly peltin doon,
tae Eamonns bar I was bound ,tae see my bird theTomboy.
She stood there in her dockers boots,her hair shaved right in tae the roots,
True it is the day I rued,I went out wi a tomboy.
We were in bed for half past one,she dropped her pipe and I got burned,
A bloody battle then began, wi my bird theTomboy,
Her sweary words they were so rude,as she got intae me wi the boot,
but this brave man he boldly stood,upon his bird the Tomboy.
But alas I could no longer stay,so I got up and ran away,
my groin it was so sore the day,that I fought wi my Tomboy.
But full o drink I then did say,barman please show me the way,
and I will go to win the day,against my bird the Tomboy.
4 Alas my bird you are so vain,the women cant outfight the men,
and I have come to make this plain,to you my bird the Tomboy.
My dinner hit me in a can,dessert was served in a jar of jam,
a second battle then began,wi my bird the Tomboy.
The MacDonalds chapped through on the wall,The Camerons
3screamed as I hit the floor,
McIntosh was at the door,as I fought wi my Tomboy.
She boldly on my heid did dance,her knuckledusters did advance,
A heidbutt made my teeth tae dance,on the floor around my Tomboy.
The blood it was all oer my clothes,as she laid in wi mighty blows,
My lights went out upon the floor, as I fought wi my Tomboy.
I wakened up at half past ten,the nurse she said your back again,
will you never-ever learn,never date a Tomboy.
(repeat last 2 lines)
then repeat "never date a Tomboy"(twice).
