by Wilfrid Wilson Gibson (1878 - 1962)

Scatterpenny
Language: English 
You'd take me for a lucky lad, 
But I I haven't any, 
For I was born on a Friday morn, 
Was born at Scatterpenny. 

You'd take me for a lass's lad, 
But I I haven't any, 
For I was born on a Friday morn, 
Was born at Scatterpenny. 

And he who'd have his luck with a lass, 
As I I haven't any, 
Must not get born on a Friday morn, 
And not at Scatterpenny.
