Sir, I say, sir, I say, I'm going a-milking, sir, 1 say."
"May I go with you, my pretty maid, My pretty maid, my pretty maid,
May I go with you, my pretty maid?"
"You may if you wish to, sir, I say, Sir, I say, sir, I say,
You may if you wish to, sir, I say."
"What is your father, my pretty maid, My pretty maid, my pretty maid,
What is your father, my pretty maid?"
"My father's a farmer, sir, I say, Sir, I say, sir, I say,
My father's a farmer, sir, I say."
" What is your fortune, my pretty maid, My pretty maid, my pretty maid,
What is your fortune, my pretty maid?"
"My face is my fortune, sir, I say, Sir, I say, sir, I say,
My face is my fortune, sir, I say."
"Then I won't have you, my pretty maid, My pretty maid, my pretty maid,
Then I won't have you, my pretty maid."
"Nobody asked you, sir, I say, Sir, I say, sir, I say,
Nobody asked you, sir, I say."
