Buy Broom Buzzems

1. partie – version originale

If ye want a buzzem, for to sweep yor hoose
Come to me, ma honey, ye may hae yor choose.

Refrain:
Buy broom buzzems, buy them when they're new
Fine heather bred uns, better never grew.

Buzzems for a penny, rangers for a plack
If ye winnot buy, I'll tie them on my back.

Buy broom buzzems,

If aa had a horse, ad wad hev a cairt;
If aa had a wife, she wad tyek me pairt.

Buy broom buzzems,

Had aa but a wife, aa care not what she be
If she's but a woman, that's enyuf for me

Buy broom buzzems,

If she liked a droppie, her and I'd agree;
If she didn't like it, there's the mair for me.

Buy broom buzzems.

Buy Broom Buzzems

 2. partie - addition d'une nouvelle strophe à la version originale ajouté par Blind Willie (musicien originaire de Newcastle)


Up the Butcher Bank, and down Byker Chare;
There you'll see the lasses selling brown ware.

Buy broom buzzems, etc.

Alang the Quayside, stop at Russell's Entry;
There you'll see the beer drawer, she is standing sentry.

Buy broom buzzems, etc.

If you want an oyster, for to taste your mouth,
Call at Handy Walker's — he's a bonny youth.

Buy broom buzzems, etc.

Call at Mr. Loggie's, he does sell good wine;
There you'll see the beer drawer, she is very fine.

Buy broom buzzems, etc.
