I am a chimbley, a chimbley sweep, no bed to lie, no shoes to hold my feet
On a rooftop in dead of night, youíll hear me cry Iíll shake you from your sleep

I am an orphan, an orphan boy, Iíve known no love, Iíve seen no motherís joy
A dirty doorstep, my cradle lay, my fortuneís made Iíll shake you from your sleep

Oh, lonely urchin, the widow cried, Iíve not been swept since the day my husband died
Her cheeks are blushing, her legs lay bare
And shipwrecked there Iíll shake you from your sleep

To hear me weep, your day will come indeed
For I am a poor and a wretched boy, the chimbley chimbley sweep
For I am a poor and a wretched boy, chimbley chimbley sweep

               Em
