Once in my life I married a wife,
And where do you think I found her ? On Gretna Green, in velvet sheen,
And I took up a stick to pound her, She jumped over a barberry-bush,
And I jumped over a timber, I showed her a gay gold ring,
And she showed me her finger.
Ride a cock horse to Charing-Cross,
To see a young woman
Jump on a white horse,
And bells on her toes,
Wherever she goes.
Johnny shall have a new bonnet.
And Johnny shall go to the fair, And Johnny shall have a new ribbon
To tie up his bonny brown hair. And why may not I love Johnny,
And why may not Johnny love me? And why may not I love Johnny
As well as another body ? And here's a leg for a stocking,
And here's a foot for a shoe, And he has a kiss for daddy,
And two for his mammy also. And why may not I love Johnny ?
And why, &c. &c.
Who comes here ? A Grenadier.
There was an old woman, she liv'd in a shoe,
Heigh ding a ding, what shall I sing ?
Hey rub-a-dub, ho rub-a-dub, three maids in a tub,
And who do you think was there?
And all of them gone to the fair.
To be sung in a high wind.
