The Lyrics

Haberdashery rout--
You cannot get it out:
Coat stain.
And you are feelin' down--
It's an ugly brown
Coat stain.

Was all white,
Nice and bright,
Now there's blight:
Coat stain

Next coat that you choose:
Go for very dark hues.
Coat stain.
When you've got it on,
Folks won't see what you done:
Coat stain.

It's alright,
In daylight,
See no blight.
Coat stain.

When that cloak you don,
It won't show, though not gone:
Coat stain.

Don't forget this fact:
Best stain-cacher's black--
No stain. . .

Is in sight
As with white,
Which shows blight:
Coat stain.

No one might
Ask outright:
"Is that shite?"

Coat stain.

You should try Vanish or Oxi-Action, just to see if the adverts that make them to be so wonderful are actually truthful!

It may be blood from some animal he shot. If you read his autobiography, he tells all about how he got off the stuff and then developed a passion for guns and hunting. Trading one addiction for another, perhaps?
