This rare song appears to be based on an Irish music hall song “My Old Cloth Shop” which starts “My name is Tom McNulty, a man that is well known”. Traditional singers have converted the Irish shop owner into a Jew.
Apart from the verses that Wiggy sings, the original has the following:
I sell trousers from the corduroy up to the American tweed
Petticoats shifts and blankets and I sell them at a very good speed
I never sell an article without I get a good cut
And I’m doing a rattlin’ business in my ould cloth shop.
I’m paying a man ten-bob a week for standing at the door
Shouting out at the top of his voice to bring them into the floor
They’re going out they’re coming in you’d think they never would stop
For I don’t need any cripples in the ould cloth shop.
