As I walked out on a midsummer's morning
Down by the banks of the sweet primroses

Not knowing her as she passed me by
She appeared to be like some virtuous bride
I says "Fair maid, where are you going?
I will make you as happy as any lady

You are a false deceitful man, I know
And in your comfort lies no refrain"
So I'll go down to some lonesome valley
Where the pretty little small birds do change their voices

Pray pay attention to what I say
Turns out to be a sunshiny day
