The Dunmow Flitch

The Dunmow Flitch

Well if you love your baby, and if that love is true ,
There’s a prize a-waiting, a-waiting just for you,

It’s the Flitch, (Its the Dunmow Flitch),
It’s the Flitch, (Its the Dunmow Flitch),
Apply today there’ll be no hitch, and you might win the Dunmow Flitch.

And if you never argue, and there’s giving and takin’,
Kneel down take the oath, an’ then bring home the Bacon.

It’s the Flitch, (Its the Dunmow Flitch),
It’s the Flitch, (Its the Dunmow Flitch),
If your romance goes without a hitch, you could win the Dunmow Flitch.

Well if you want that side of pork, wanna take it away,
Ye shouldn’t have fussed and fought, been wed a year’n a day.

It’s the Flitch, (Its the Dunmow Flitch),
It’s the Flitch, (Its the Dunmow Flitch),
Your true love could make you rich, and you might win the Dunmow Flitch.

And when you’ve passed the sharp stone trial, paraded through the town,
You can take the hog meat home, fry it up and wolf it down.

It’s the Flitch, (Its the Dunmow Flitch),
It’s the Flitch, (Its the Dunmow Flitch),
You won’t get the seven year itch, if you win the Dunmow Flitch.
