Lyrics

In Nottamun Town not a soul would look up, Not a soul would look up, not a soul would look down, Not a soul would look up, not a soul would look down, To show me the way to fair Nottamun Town.

Met the King and the Queen, and a company more Come a-walking behind and a-riding before Come a stark naked drummer a-beating the drum With his hands on his bosom, come marching along.

Sat down on a hard, hot cold frozen stone,

Ten thousand stood 'round me, yet I was alone Took my hat in my hands for to keep my head warm, Ten thousand got drownded that never was born.

In Nottamun Town not a soul would look up, Not a soul would look up, not a soul would look down, Not a soul would look up, not a soul would look down, To show me the way to fair Nottamun Town.
