The Cobbler

I came across "The Cobbler" in the Clancy Brother's The Irish Songbook and have never heard it performed. It's got a splendidly rousing chorus and I find it very amusing. I sing out the verse:
    "Oh my wife she is humpy, she's lumpy
    My wife she's the devil, she's black;
    And no matter what I may do with her,
    Her tongue it goes clickety-clack."
with special relish with my heart going out to all hen-pecked and down-trodden spouses.
