Martin Said To His Man
Heather Dale Lyrics


Martin said to his man,
"Fie, man, fie!"
Martin said to his man,
"Who's the fool now?"
Martin said to his man,
"Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Thou hast well drunken, man.
Who's the fool now?"

I saw the man in the moon,
"Fie, man, fie!"
I saw the man in the moon,
"Who's the fool now?"
I saw the man in the moon,
Shining up St. Peter's shoe.
"Thou hast well drunken, man,
Who's the fool now?"

Well, I saw the mouse chase the cat.
"Fie, man, fie!"
I saw the mouse chase the cat.
"Who's the fool now?"
I saw the mouse chase the cat,
Then the cheese ate the rat.
"Thou hast well drunken, man,
Who's the fool now?"

Who's the fool now?
Tell me, who's the fool now?
Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Who's the fool now?
Who's the fool now?
Tell me, who's the fool now?
Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Who's the fool now?

Well, I saw the hare chase the hound.
"Fie, man, fie!"
I saw the hare chase the hound.
"Who's the fool now?"
I saw the hare chase the hound
Twenty feet above the ground.
"Thou hast well drunken, man,
Who's the fool now?"

Well, I saw a maid milk a bull.
"Fie, man, fie!"
I saw a maid milk a bull.
"Who's the fool now?"
I saw that maid milk that bull,
With every stroke a bucket-full.
"Thou hast well drunken, man,
Who's the fool now?"

Who's the fool now?
Tell me, who's the fool now?
Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Who's the fool now?
Who's the fool now?
Tell me, who's the fool now?
Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Who's the fool now?

Well, Martin said to his man,
"Fie, man, fie!"
Martin said to his man,
"Who's the fool now?"
Martin said to his man,
"Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Thou hast well drunken, man.
Who's the fool now?"

Who's the fool now?
Tell me, who's the fool now?
Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Who's the fool now?
Who's the fool now?
Tell me, who's the fool now?
Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Who's the fool now?

Who's the fool now?
Tell me, who's the fool now?
Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Who's the fool now?
Who's the fool now?
Tell me, who's the fool now?
Fill thou the cup and I the can.
Who's the fool now?

I know! It's awesome! I only discovered this song today and now I'm determined to someday sing it in a bar and get everybody joining in (after we've all had a few, of course; it seems only appropriate for this song). :)

I love this song. Thanks a lot for posting it! It's one of my favorites right now just because it's so completely random but fun!
