Haselbury Girl As I was going to Haselbury, all on one market day I met a little Haselbury girl, her business being that way Her business being to market; with butter, cheese and eggs And we both jogged on together, my boys Sing: Fal-the-ral-looral-i-day As we were jogging along the road, chatting side by side I spied this pretty fair maid's garter come untied And fearing she should lose it, I unto her did say My love, your garter is coming untied Sing: Fal-the-ral-looral-i-day Now if you tie it up for me, rewarded you shall be Then if I tie it up for you, come under yonder tree Whilst tying up her garter, such a wonderful sight did I see My hand did slip right up to her hip Sing: Fal-the-ral-looral-i-day Now since you've had your way to-day, pray tell to me your name Likewise your occupation, from where and whence you came Mly name is Jack the Rover, from Dub-i-lin Town I do come And I live alongside of the Ups and Downs Sing: Fal-the-ral-looral-i-day Returning home from the market, her butter it being all sold And a-losing of her maidenhead, it made her blood run cold O it's gone, it's gone, so let it go, it's gone to the lad I adore And he lives alongside of the Ups and Downs And I'll never see him any more From Folksongs of Britain and Ireland, Kennedy Collected from Harry Cox, 1953 RG
