    The Dancing Did

    Below the haze of a sun-drenched spire
    Of a ruined abbey's remaining tower
    Lies a market town in Worcestershire

    Old market gardeners bring their fruit and veg yields
    To this busy little island in its sea of fields
    But nothing much moves now under the sinking sun
    Except for lorries to the canneries, carrying plums
    And a figure on the high road, as he ambles into town
    For on a Friday evening he's always there about this time

    With a rеd coat of dust on his hobnial boots
    A black mirror finish on his well worn suit
    Oak bark skin, squinting eye
    Deep porеd hook nose, he whistles like a lark
    Razor in his waistcoat, playful as a shark
    And though his teeth don't sparkle, his pocket watch shines
    And says his six o'clock shadow is right on time
    The road is his home, the ditch is his billet
    He's got a hat on his head with a pheasant feather in it

    Now some may call him ragamuffin, rambler, alley sloper
    Vagrant, scatterling, ne'er do well, vagabond, landloper
    Stroller, wanderer, rover, scruffy 'erbert, vicious Sid
    But folks round here just know him as The Dancing Did
    The Dancing Didicoi, The Dancing Didicoi
    Since he was a boy, he's been a dancing did

    In the back room of the Blue Boar the jukebox blares out Country and Western sounds
    There he stands surrounded by a crowd
    A mug of cider in his hand as his toecaps tap the ground
    The audience laugh and shout and clap and throw coins at his feet
    For entertainment in this town you'll find this hard to beat

    Now some may call him ragamuffin, rambler, alley sloper
    Vagrant, scatterling, ne'er do well, vagabond, landloper
    Stroller, wanderer, rover, scruffy 'erbert, vicious Sid
    But folks round here just know him as The Dancing Did
    The Dancing Didicoi, The Dancing Didicoi
    Since he was a boy, he's been a dancing did

    The Dancing Didicoi, The Dancing Didicoi
    Since he was a boy, he's been a dancing did
