As I Roved Out (Letra/Lyrics)

As I roved out on a May morning
On a May morning right early
I met my love upon the way
Oh, Lord but she was early

[Chorus]
And she sang lilt-a-doodle, lilt-a-doodle, lilt-a-doodle-dee,-
And she hi-di-lan-di-dee, and she hi-di-lan-di-dee and she lan- day

Her boots were black and her stockings white
And her buckles shone like silver
She had a dark and a rolling eye
And her ear-rings tipped her shoulder

[Chorus]

\"What age are you my bonny wee lass
What age are you my honey?\"
Right modestly she answered me
\"I'll be seventeen on Sunday\"

[Chorus]

\"Where do you live my bonny wee lass
Where do you live my honey?\"
\"In a wee house up on the top of the hill
And I live there with my mammy\"

[Chorus]

\"If I went to the house on the top of the hill
When the moon was shining clearly
Would you arise and let me in
And your mammy not to hear you?\"

[Chorus]

I went to the house on the top of the hill
When the moon was shining clearly
She arose to let me in
But her mammy chanced to hear her

[Chorus]

She caught her by the hair of the head
And down to the room she brought her
And with the butt of a hazel twig
She was the well-beat daughter

[Chorus]

\"Will you marry me now my soldier lad
Will you marry me now or never?
Will you marry me now my soldier lad
For you see I'm done forever\"

[Chorus]

\"I can't marry you my bonny wee lass
I can't marry you my honey
For I have got a wife at home
And how could I disown her?\"

[Chorus]

A pint at night is my delight
And a gallon in the morning
The old women are my heart break
But the young ones is my darling

[Chorus]
