Gently Johnny My Jingalo I put my hand all in her own Fair maid is a lily oh She said, "If you love me alone Come to me quietly Do me no injury Gently, Johnny, my Jingalo" I said, "You know I love you, dear" Fair... She whispered softly in my ear Come... I placed my arm around her waist She laughed and turned away her face I kissed her lips like roses red She blushed, then tenderly she said I slipped a ring all in her hand She said, "The parson's near at hand" I took her to the church next day The birds did sing and she did say See also AROVIN rewritten by Cecil Sharp, who objected to the original anatomical progression.
