Nine Dirty Toes

To see Mad Tom of Bedlam
Ten thousand miles I'll travel
Mad Maud sets out on dirty toes
To save her shoes from gravel.

Still I sing bonny boys,
bonny mad boys,
Bedlam boys are bonny--

For they all go bare

and they live by the air
and they want no drink nor money.

--English ballad
