Oh! who is there all under my window,
Your voice so loud I hear you there,
You may go court and love (or join) some other
And whisper softly in her ear.
Begone, begone you will wake my mother
My father he will quick-a-ly hear,
You may go and court &c.
Oh! why may I go and court another,
To rob (or wrong) my jewel of her charms,
For now she's grown up from her mother,
I'm sure she's fitter for her true love's arms.
