The Wild Mounting Time
(the Kipper Family: R. Nudds and C. Sugden)

Oh the Springtime that is coming,
And the girls are in a dither.
'Tis the Wild Mounting Time
And I am wondering whether

     Do you go Lassie go
     And will we go together
     At the Wild Mounting Time
     Or will I get Blooming Heather
     Do you go lassie go?

My love is like a swan
With the lightness of its feather,
But her friend is like a goose
And they call her Bloomin' Heather
I will build my love a mower
And cut down that Bloomin' Heather
Then at the Wild Mounting Time
My love will be mine forever

If my truelove she won't go
Then I surely will not bother
For at the Wild Mountain Time
I could even fancy Heather.
