Corduroy Cap, broadsheet ballads
Eats cold potatoes with oily salads
Likes Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs
Quick-witted with his topical jokes

He plays all the places rowdy and boozey
Wants to come over as Big Bill Broonzy
But nobody's buying that
Skinny guy in corduroy cap
Dig the cap

Corduroy Cap, he's got some balls
Leads the singing in the workingman's halls
If there's a march or there's a strike
Here he comes on his bike

Corduroy Cap, he finds the place
Knows that he's part of a dying race
It's a hard sell for sure
When nobody's listening anymore
Anymore

Stick to the old ones, son
Don't bother with the topical ones
Saddеr the better
Wеt all our eyelids
That's where it's at
The singalong Irish
Pass around the corduroy cap
Let's give this boy a clap
He's having a crack at that
Pity that the louts at the back
Don't see that

Corduroy Cap, broadsheet ballads
Eats cold potatoes with oily salads
Likes Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs
Quick-witted with his topical jokes

He plays all the places rowdy and boozey
Wants to come over as Big Bill Broonzy
But nobody's buying that
Skinny guy in corduroy cap
Dig the cap

No nobody's buying that
Skinny guy in corduroy cap
Dig the cap
