    Lyrics

    I'm Jake the Peg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um,
    With my extra leg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um.
    Wherever I go through rain and snow,
    The people always let me know:
    There's Jake the Peg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um,
    With his extra leg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um.
    The day that I was born, oh boy, my father nearly died.
    He couldn't get my nappys on, no matter how he tried,
    'Cause I was born with an extra leg, and since that day begun,
    I had to learn to stand on my own three feet,
    Believe me that's no fun!

    I'm Jake the peg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um,
    With my extra leg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um,
    Wherever I go through rain and snow,
    The people always let me know:
    There's Jake the Peg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um,
    With his extra leg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um.

    I had a dreadful childhood, really,
    I supose I shouldn't moan,
    Each time they had a three legged race,
    I won it on my own!
    And also I got popular,
    When came the time for cricket,
    They used to roll my trousers up,
    And use me for the wicket.

    I'm jake the peg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um,
    With my extra leg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um.
    Wherever I go through rain and snow,
    The people always let me know:
    There's Jake the Peg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um,
    With his extra leg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um.

    I was a dreadful scholar,
    I found all the lessons hard,
    The only thing I knew for sure was three feet make a yard.
    To count to ten I used my fingers,
    If I needed more,
    By getting my shoes and socks of,
    I could count to twenty-four.
    (Pause...count: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10....) To twenty-five!

    I'm jake the peg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um,
    With my extra leg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um.
    Whatever I did they said was false,
    They said 'Quick march,' I did a quick waltz.
    Then they shouted at me 'Put your best foot forward.'
    'But which foot?' I said.
    'It's very fine for you, you only got a choice of two, but me!

    I'm jake the peg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um,
    With my extra leg, deedle-eedle-eedle-um.
