  • Christy Brown
    A clown around town
    Now man of renown
    From Dingle to Down

    I can type with me toes
    Suck stout through me nose
    And where it's gonna end
    God only knows

    Down all the days
    The tap-tap-tapping of the typewriter pays
    The gentle rattling of the drays
    Down all the days

    I have often had to depend upon
    The kindness of strangers
    But I've never been asked and I never replied
    If I supported the Glasgow Rangers

    And down all the days
    The tap-tap-tapping of the typewriter pays
    The gentle rattling of the drays
    Down all the days

    Down all the days
    The tap-tap-tapping of the typewriter pays
    The gentle rattling of the drays
    And down all the days
