Whistle Down The Wind – Annie Christmas lyrics

[The Man]
She lived in these parts, she was a big old girl
Miss Annie, what a wonder
Three hundred pounds and six foot eight, in her bare feet
Annie Christmas

She could drink and she could fight, she had a curly black moustache
She was famous, on the river
She was madly in love with a wild gambling man
That was Charlie and she loved him

But old Charlie never even noticed her at all
Until one day, what a one day

When she wore a very special necklace
Just to prove that she was tough and reckless
With a bead for every ear and nose
She had bitten off, as the story goes

When she bit every man who ever did her wrong
And the necklace was already thirty feet long
And the upshot was, and the upshot was

Old Charlie was impressed and the next thing you know
They were married, what a wedding
And the next year she gave him a dozen sons at once
They were giants!

[Poor Baby]
What a wonder

[The Man]
And before they were six they were seven foot four
In their bare feet

[Louis]
They were giants!

[The Man]
And they carried miss Annie on their shoulders like a prize
She was beaming like an Angel

[Swallow]
Like an Angel

[Poor Baby]
With a moustache!

[The Man]
And she always wore that special necklace
'Cause it proved that she was tough and reckless
With a bead for every ear and nose
She had bitten off, as the story goes

[The Man & The Children]
And she always wore that special necklace
'Cause it proved that she was tough and reckless
With a bead for every ear and nose
She had bitten off, as the story goes
