All around my hat I will wear the green willow
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it

Nothing have I gained but my own true love I've lost
He's a false deluding young man, let him go farewell he
The other night he brought me a fine diamond ring
But I being careful like lovers ought to be

All around my hat for a twelve-month and a day
It's all for my true love who's far far away
Here's a half a pound of reasons, and a quarter pound of sense
You mix them all together and you will plainly see

All around my hat for a twelve-month and a day
It's all for my true love who's far far away
