Lyrics

There was a day in September As clear as I can remember I was visiting Kingston town And taking a look around I saw a cute little fellow Who was looking downhearted When I asked what the matter could be He stopped to tell the story I had a little donkey And he done got locked up Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) They stick him in the jail And he ain't done nothing Pum pa lum (pum pa lum)

Got him peeping through the bars Like a little monkey Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) The folks all say He been a real bad donkey Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) They say he's acting Like there's rum in his hay Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) He wasn't drunk He just wanna play Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) I hear they're gonna Have a trial in the morning Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) I'm gonna tell the judge That he ain't done nothing Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) La la la la la... First he bumped Mrs. Mary And then he bite the policeman Turn and broke Mr. Webster's cart Which was almost fallen apart He started a little riot But now there's peace and there's quiet See how he done empty the street Ain't no one to trip your feet I had a little donkey And he done got locked up Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) They stick him in the jail And he ain't done nothing Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) Got him peeping through the bars Like a little monkey Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) The folks all say He been a real bad donkey Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) They say he's acting Like there's rum in his hay Pum pa lum (pum pa lum) He wasn't drunk He just wanna play Pum pa lum (pum pa lum)
