Robin He Married a Wife

Robin He Married a Wife

1.  Robin he married a wife from the west
    Moppity, moppity mo no
    She got up before she was dressed
    With a high jig jiggety top and petticoat
    Robin, a thrush cries mo no no.

2.  When she got up, she got up in a haste
    Went to the cupboard before she was laced.

3.  Went to the cupboard and opened the door
    Cheese rolled out, fell out on the floor.

4.  Cheese fell out upon the floor
    Out of the cupboard and out of the door.

5.  It ran till it came to Wakefield Cross
    She followed after upon a white horse.

6.  This song was made for gentlemen
    If you want any more you can sing it again.

7.  There's bread and cheese upon the shelf
    If you want any more you can sing it yourself.
