[D]Toora loora loorala,
[A7]toora loora loo[D]rala
Toora loora loorala,
give the [A7]child a jar of [D]porter
[D]If you want your child to grow,
your [A7]child to grow, your [D]child to grow.
[D]If you want your child
give [A7]him a jar of [D]porter. (sing)
When I was young and cradle cake,
No drop of milk now would I take.
Me father up and had his spake
the child a drop of porter."
When I am dead and in my grave ,
I hope for me a prayer you'll say,
And if you're passing by that you'll
in a jar of porter.
And when I reach the golden gates,
I hope I'll not have long to wait,
I'll call Saint Peter aside and say
you a jar of porter."
