Have you been to the Mediterranean

Up came Ted without any legs
    Am                  C
And in their place, two wooden pegs
    Em                 G
She kissed him a dozen times or two

"Now were you drunk or were you blind
         Am                 C
When you left your two fine legs behind
   Em                    G
Or was it while walking upon the sea
          Am                     G
Wore your two fine legs from the knees away?"
       Em                 G
"No, I wasn't drunk and I wasn't blind
       Am               C
When I left my two fine legs behind
      Em                 G
But a cannon ball on the fifth of May,
        Am                   G
Tore my two fine legs and my knees away"

"My Teddyboy," the widow cried
"Your two fine legs were your mother’s pride    [only drums in this verse]
That stumps of a tree wouldn’t do at all
Why didn't you run from the cannon ball?"

     Em             G
"All foreign wars I do proclaim
   Am                    C
Between Don John and the King of Spain,
    Em                       G
I’d rather have my son as he used to be
         Am                     G
Than the King of France and his whole navy"
