Real Mckenzies – Chip lyrics

Chip worked as a boatwright as his father and his gran
A' working in a boat yard building on the River Thames
One day Chip was hard at work, the Devil appeared from hell
He held a roll of copper and a bucket full of nails

The Devil said unto Chip, "take these nails and copper roll
But you also have to take this rat and I will take your soul"
Chip despised the rat, and the rat squealed and hissed
But the bucket of nails and copper were too much to resist

Chip went straight to work, he'd get rid of the rat
And there would no' be a problem with his death after the fact
But the devil rat wouldn't die, no matter how hard he tried
The rat attacked the boatwright and 'e bit him in the eye

It seemed as if the river rats fell under Satan's spell
They followed Chip around and made his life a living hell
He slowly lost his mind, he lost his family
He lost his job and had to join the King's Navy

A lemon grows a pip
A yard will build a ship
As Satan is my master
I will get you, Chip
A lemon grows a pip
A yard will build a ship
As Satan is my master
I'm gonna get you

The rats chased Chip up the gangplank of the ship
And they bit him and they tortured him until he finally flipped
He sniveled to the captain to turn around this rig
The captain spied his madness and they chucked him in the brig

The devil rat had his man, he knew just what to do
He'd command the rats and through the planks they'd chew
The water rushed in, and the ship went down
She was smashed upon the rocks on which the rats danced around

A lemon grows a pip
A yard will build a ship
As Satan is my master
I will get you, Chip
A lemon grows a pip
A yard will build a ship
As Satan is my master
I will get you, Chip
A lemon grows a pip
A yard will build a ship
As Satan is my master
I will get you, Chip
A lemon grows a pip
A yard will build a ship
As Satan is my master
I got you, Chip
