Ther False-Hearted Lover Once I had a colour, It were just like a rose; But now I'm as pale as The lily that do grow. O, there's me and my baby, Now contented we'll be; Well, I will try and forget you As you forgot me. Like the flowers all in the garden When the beauty's all gone; Can't you see just what I'm come to By a-loving that one? Now, all you young ladies, You take warning by me; Never let a young man Get one inch above your knee. He will kiss you and he'll coax you, And he'll call you his love; And a false heart, deceitful, Will bid you farewell. Well, there's love on the ocean, And there's love on dry land ; Long as breath's in my body I'll still love that one. From Travellers' Songs, MacColl & Seeger Collected from Caroline Hughes note: similar to Yellow Handkerchief, Flash Companie RG apr96
