W:An old man came courting me, hey ding doo rum dah,
W:An old man came courting me, me being young,
W:An old man came courting me, fain would he marry me,
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
W:
W:Chorus:
W:Because he's got no fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle aye oorum,
W:He's got no fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle all day.
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:When we went to church, hey ding doo rum dah,
W:When we went to church, me being young,
W:When we went to church, he left me in the lurch,
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:When we went to bed, hey ding doo rum dah,
W:When we went to bed, me being young,
W:When we went to bed, he lay like he was dead,
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:So I threw me leg over him, hey ding doo rum dah,
W:I flung me leg over him, me being young,
W:I threw me leg over him, damned well near smothered him,
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:When he went to sleep, hey ding doo rum dah,
W:When he went to sleep, me being young,
W:When he went to sleep, out of bed I did creep,
W:Into the arms of a handsome young man!
W:
W:Last chorus:
W:And I found his fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle aye oorum,
W:I found his fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle all day,
W:I found his fal-loo-rum, he got my ding-doo-rum, now
W:Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
