Lyrics

For to see mad Tom of Bedlam
(Tom of Bedlam)
Ten thousand miles I'd travel
(miles I'd travel)
Mad Maudlin walks on dirty toes
(dirty toes)
For to save her shoes from gravel
(shoes from gravel)

Still I sing bonnie boys, bonnie mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonnie,
For they all go bare and they live by the air
And they want no drink nor money

I went down to Satan's kitchen
(satan's kitchen)
For to break my fast one morning
(fast one morning)
And there I got souls piping hot
(piping hot)
All on the spit a-turning
(spit a-turning)

Still I sing bonnie boys, bonnie mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonnie,
For they all go bare and they live by the air
And they want no drink nor money

There I picked up a couldron
(up a couldron)
Where pulled ten thousand harlots
(thousad harlots)
Though full of flame a drank the same
(drank the same)
To the health of all such garlots (?)
(all such garlots) (?)

Still I sing bonnie boys, bonnie mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonnie,
For they all go bare and they live by the air
And they want no drink nor money

Me staff has murdered giants
(murder giants)
And me bag a long knife carries
(long knife carries)
For to cut mince pies from children's thighs
(children's thighs)
With which to feed the fairies
(feed the fairies)

Still I sing bonnie boys, bonnie mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonnie,
For they all go bare and they live by the air
And they want no drink nor money

And when that I have murdered
The man in the moon to a powder
His staff I'll break and his dog I'll shake
And there'll howl no demon louder

Still I sing bonnie boys, bonnie mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonnie,
For they all go bare and they live by the air
And they want no drink nor money

So let's drink to Tom of Bedlam
(Tom of Bedlam)
He'll fill the sea in barrels
(sea in barrels)
We'll drink and all, and brew with gold
(brew with gold)
And then (?) we will travel
(we will travel)

Still I sing bonnie boys, bonnie mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonnie,
For they all go bare and they live by the air
And they want no drink nor money

Still I sing bonnie boys, bonnie mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonnie,
For they all go bare and they live by the air
And they want no drink nor money
