W:As I roved out on a May morning to take a pleasant walk
W:I sat down by an old stone wall, just to hear two lovers talk
W:to hear two lovers talk, my dear, to hear what they might say,
W:so I might learn a little more love before I go away.
W:
W:Chorus:
W:P it stands for Paddy I suppose, J for my love John,
W:W stands for false William, but Johnny is the fairest man
W:Johnny is the fairest man, she said, Johnny is the fairest man,
W:I don't care what anybody says for Johnny is the fairest man.

W:Come and sit beside me love together on the green
W:It's a long three quarters of a year or more since together we have been
W:Together we have been, my dear, together we have been
W:It's a long three quarters of a year or more since together we have been
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:No, I won't sit beside you love, not now nor at any other time
W:For you're in love with another little girl, and your heart's no longer mine
W:Your heart's no longer mine, my dear, your heart's no longer mine
W:For you're in love with another little girl, and your heart's no longer mine
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Now I will climb a tall, tall tree, and rob a little bird's nest
W:and then I will return again to the girl that I love best
W:To the girl that I love best, he said, the girl that I love best
W:and then I then I will return again to the girl that I love best
W:
W:Chorus
