When Maureen married har dear Ray, they never had a lot!
They set up home in bus ya know, and shared what little they’d got
They lived orf of the land ‘n’ tide, and kept their wit’s about (and)
Har fearvrut time was supper time; when the winkle he do come out


Oh the
Winkle he do come out! Oh the; winkle he do come out!
Har fearvrut time was supper time; when the winkle he do come out

She rearly love har grub ya know, she rearly, rearly do!
Ol’ Ray he loved his cockles, them big ol’ stewki blues (but if)
Maureen whiff a winkle, she start to twitch har snout (then)
Out come har pin ‘n’ she dive in, and the winkle he do come out

 

Oh the 
Winkle he do come out, oh the; winkle he do come out!
Har fearvrut time is supper time; when the winkle he do come out

 

They’d go out on the mud flats, oh when the tides were right
And have a reark about ya know, in sarch o’ Rays delight
And then they’d move up to the creek, where winkle’ hang about
And Maureen dive har hand roit in, and the winkle he do come out! 

 

Oh the 
Winkle he do come out, oh the; winkle he do come out 
You know tha’s true what i tell you; oh the winkle he do come out 

There’s tarky’s livin wild ya know, if you know where ta look
And long tailed pigeons in the dark, my warrrd that gal can cook
They’d walk out with the pram ya know; ‘n’ catapult o’corse, (then they’d)
Come home with a tarky tucked, in the bottom o’ the silver crorse

 

Ray say
“leg or breast oi dorn’t care less, come on le’ss git stuck in”
The parson’s nose is best when closed! A’corse o’ where tha’s bin
But in the back o’ Maureen’s mind, all she could think about
Is when that git ta supper time, and the winkle he do come out

 

Oh the
winkle he do come out, oh the; winkle he do come out
Har fearvrut time is suppertime; when the winkle he do come out
Har fearvrut time is suppertime  when the winkllllle he doooo comme ouuuuuut!

 

Oh the winkle he do come out!
