Elvis Costello - "When That I Was a Little Tiny Boy" lyrics

When that I was and a little tiny boy

With a hey-ho

The wind and the rain
A foolish thing was but a toy

For the rain it raineth

But when I came to mans estate
Every day

With a hey-ho
The wind and the rain

gainst knaves and thieves men shut their gate

For the rain it raineth
Every day

With a hey-ho
But when I came alas to wife

The wind and the rain

By swaggering I could never fright

For the rain it raineth

Every day

But when I came unto my bed

With a hey-ho

The wind and the rain

With tosspots still a drunken head

For the rain it raineth

Every day

A great while ago the world began

With a hey-ho

The wind and the rain

But thats all one our play is done

And well strive to please you
Every day
