Description

Long description

Singer boasts of his wide travels, saying he's courted all over America, England, France and Spain. The colonel's wife, having heard of his prowess, wishes to see "the naked truth", so he pulls out his "lusty pin" as she leads him to the bedroom, saying, "You shall be my handy man." And, frustratingly, there the only recorded version of the song ends.

Notes

I've not seen this anywhere else, and neither has Ed Cray. The magnificent tune is distinctly British-sounding. - PJS
