W:Oh Peggy Gordon, you are my darling.
W:Come sit you down upon my knee,
W:and tell to me the very reason
W:why I am slighted so by thee.
W:
W:I am in love I cannot deny it.
W:My heart lies troubled in my breast.
W:It's not for me to let the world know it.
W:A troubled heart can find no rest.
W:
W:I put my hand to a cask of brandy.
W:It was my fancy, so to do,
W:for when I am drinking, I'm seldom thinking,
W:and wishing Peggy Gordon was here.
W:
W:I wish I was away in Ingo,
W:far across the briny sea,
W:sailing over deepest ocean,
W:where love and care ne'er bother me.
W:
W:I wish I was in a lonely valley,
W:where womenkind cannot be found,
W:where all the small birds they change their voices,
W:and every moment a different sound.
W:
W:Oh Peggy Gordon, you are my darling.
W:Come sit you down upon my knee,
W:and tell to me the very reason
W:why I am slighted so by thee.
