Bold Turpin Hero is my name
And I from Dublin City came
It was my slight and nimble hand
That caused me to forsake my land.
Chorus:
Oh rare Turpin hero
Oh rare Turpin-o!

2. On Hounslow Heath as I rode oer
I spied a lawyer riding before
"Kind sir", said I, "Arent you afraid
Of Turpin that mischievous blade.
Chorus:

3. The Turpin being so very cute
Said, "I've hid me money in me boot"
The Lawyer said, "Theres none can find
Ive hid mine in me cape behind".
Chorus:

4. As they rode by the powder mill
Turpin commands him to stand still
"Kind sir that cape Ill now have off
Me mare she needs a saddle cloth".
Chorus:

5. This made the lawyer very sad
To think hed been so fairly had
But Turpin robbed him of his store
Because he knew hed lie for more.
Chorus:
