Spin, spin, spin, spin


I’ve waited, longing for this day

Spindle, bobbin and spool away;

in joy and bliss I’m off to play

on this glorious holiday


Oh, spindle, bobbin and spool away

on this glorious holiday


The dirt upon the floor’s unswept

the fireplace isn’t cleaned and kept;

I haven’t trimmed the candles yet

on this glorious holiday


In pails the milk has got to go

I ought to spread this ball of dough

Ir clogs my nails and fingers so

on this glorious holiday


The cooking herbs I must fetch in

and fix my kerchief under my chin

Darling Jack, lend me your pin

to fix me well this holiday


And when we stop beside the track

at the inn this Sunday, Jack

I’ll wet my whistle and pay my whack

on this glorious holiday


Oh, spindle, bobbin and spool away

on this glorious holiday
