Lyrics:

1.O' where are you going, my pretty maid?

O' where are you going, my pretty maid?

I'm going a milking, sir, she said;

I'm going a milking, sir, she said.

And shall I go with you, my pretty maid?

And shall I go with you, my pretty maid?

O' yes! If you please, kind sir, she said;

O' yes! If you please, kind sir, she said.

 

2.Pray, what is your father, my pretty maid?

Pray, what is your father, my pretty maid?

My father's a farmer, sir, she said;

My father's a farmer, sir, she said.

Shall I marry you, my pretty maid?

Shall I marry you, my pretty maid?

O' yes! If you please, kind sir she said;

O' yes! If you please, kind sir she said.

 

3.O' what is your fortune, my pretty maid?

O' what is your fortune, my pretty maid?

My face is my fortune, sir, she said;

My face is my fortune, sir, she said.

Then I can't marry you, my pretty maid;

Then I can't marry you, my pretty maid.

But nobody asked you, sir, she said;

But nobody asked you, sir, she said.
