Girls, I'm a jolly old chappie,
Girls, I'm a deuced fine chappie,
I belong to a jolly set that known about the town.
We are the boys for fun and noise, we won't be taken down,
Always out and trashing the girls are we.
We're the crowd who're fond of a jolly spree,
Not afraid of paying the score for anything we do.
If you look at my card you'll see I'm one of the Rowdy-Dowdy Crew.
Then I say, boys, who's for a jolly spree?
Rum tum tiddley um, who'll have a drink with me?
Fond of a glass or two, fond of a row or noise
Hi! Hi! clear the way for the Rowdy-Dowdy Boys.
Girls, when we're out in society,
Girls, we are fond of variety,
In the Gaity bar we lounge just like a lot of earles,
Scatter the cash and make a dash, and mash the chorus girls.
Sometimes at billiards a game will play,
We're all right, not one of us is a jay,
If a pal should be in distress, stone-broke and he can't pull through,
He can always be sure of a helping hand from the Rowdy-Dowdy Crew.
Girls, we go out on the tiddley hi!
Girls, such a jolly old tiddley hi!
With a step we may have a row, going home so late at might,
He tootles his whistle, some more arrive, and then there is a fight,
Some get locked up, off to the station they go,
All the others follow them in a row —
Where our pal goes, you may all bet, the others must follow too —
So if they want one they must take the lot of the Rowdy-Dowdy Crew.
