Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Maids When You're Young

(Maids When You're Young Never Wed an Old Man)
Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

An old man came courting me, hey doo me darrity,
An old man came courting me, me being young,
An old man came courting me, he did propose to me,
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!

Chorus:
For he's got no fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle fal-loo-rum,
He's got no fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle fal-lay.
He's got no fal-loo-rum, he's lost his ding-doo-rum,
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!

Chorus

When we sat down to tea, hey doo me darrity,
When we sat down to tea, me being young,
When we sat down to tea, he started teasing me,
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!

Chorus

When we went up to bed, hey doo me darrity,
When we went up to bed, me being young,
When we went up to bed, he lay as if't were dead,
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!

Chorus

When he was fast asleep, hey doo me darrity,
When he was fast asleep, me being young,
When he was fast asleep, I from his side did creep,
Into the arms of a handsome young man!

last chorus:
Now he's got fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle fal-loo-rum,
He's got fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle fal-lay,
He's got fal-loo-rum, he's got a ding-doo-rum,
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
