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 ding doo rum dah,
An old man came courting me, me being young,
An old man came courting me, fain would he marry me,
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!

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

When we went to church, hey ding doo rum dah,
When we went to church, me being young,
When we went to church, he left me in the lurch,
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!

Chorus

When we went to bed, hey ding doo rum dah,
When we went to bed, me being young,
When we went to bed, he lay like he was dead,
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!

Chorus

So I threw me leg over him, hey ding doo rum dah,
I flung me leg over him, me being young,
I threw me leg over him, damned well near smothered him,
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!

Chorus

When he went to sleep, hey ding doo rum dah,
When he went to sleep, me being young,
When he went to sleep, out of bed I did creep,
Into the arms of a handsome young man!

Last chorus:
And I found his fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle aye oorum,
I found his fal-loo-rum, fal-liddle all day,
I found his fal-loo-rum, he got my ding-doo-rum, now
Maids when you're young never wed an old man!
