"I went into a public- 'ouse to get a pint o' beer,
The publican 'e up an sez, 'We serve no red-coats here.'
The girls behind the bar they laughed an' giggled fit to die,
I outs into the street again an' to myself sez I:
O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' 'Tommy go away';
But it's 'Thank you, Mister Atkins,' when the band begins to play-
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
O it's 'Thank you Mr Atkins,' when the band begins to play."
