W:An old man came courting me, hey doo me darrity,
W:An old man came courting me, me being young,
W:An old man came courting me, he did propose to me,
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
W:
W:Chorus:
W:For he's got no fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle fal-loo-rum,
W:He's got no fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle fal-lay.
W:He's got no fal-loo-rum, he's lost his ding-doo-rum,
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:When we sat down to tea, hey doo me darrity,
W:When we sat down to tea, me being young,
W:When we sat down to tea, he started teasing me,
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:When we went up to bed, hey doo me darrity,
W:When we went up to bed, me being young,
W:When we went up to bed, he lay as if't were dead,
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:When he was fast asleep, hey doo me darrity,
W:When he was fast asleep, me being young,
W:When he was fast asleep, I from his side did creep,
W:Into the arms of a handsome young man!
W:
W:last chorus:
W:Now he's got fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle fal-loo-rum,
W:He's got fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle fal-lay,
W:He's got fal-loo-rum, he's got a ding-doo-rum,
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
