Oh if you’ve got a wingo, take her up to Ringo
Where the waxies sing-o all the day.
If you’ve had your fill of porter and you can’t go any
Just give your men the order, “Back to the quay”And take her up to Monto, Monto, Monto
Take her up to Monto langeroo! To youWell you’ve heard of Butcher Foster, the dirty old
He took his mot and lost her up in Furry Glen
He first put on his bowler, then he buttoned up his
And he whistled for a growler and he said “My men”And take me up to Monto, Monto, Monto
Take me up to Monto langeroo! To you
