Everybody’s up for Tom Cribb
Everybody’s up for Tom Cribb
Queue up for the bookmaker’s handicap
Tom’s the favorite over Molineaux at Thistleton Gap
And we’re up for Tom Cribb

We’ve all got brass on Tom Cribb
A whole week’s brass on Tom Cribb
We’re putting down out pennies, shillings, and pounds
For 200 guineas and 41 rounds
We’ve got brass on Tom Cribb

He’s got the action, he’s got the brawn
But what’s he gonna do when the steam’s all gone?

The round bell rings for Tom Cribb
The rabid rabble sings for Tom Cribb
Braving England’s heavyweights face-to-face
Tommy boy’s our favorite bare-knuckle ace
And the match is called for Tom Cribb

He’s got the action, he’s got the brawn
But what’s he gonna do when the steam’s all gone?

All hats are off to Tom Cribb
There’s a parade down Haymarket Street for Tom Cribb
He’s given up the fisticuffs, but not the charms
Now he’s pulling proper pints at the Union Arms
Raise your glass to Tom Cribb
