Here a suke and there a suke, and
A gee ho here and a gee ho there,
Here a gee and there a gee, and 0 pretty maids, won't you come and go with me
To the sweet fields of Violo!
How happy I was on my father's farm,
Sweet fields of Violo, Tending to my father's sheep That ran in the vales of Violo.
And a bleat bleat here, and a bleat bleat there.
Here a bleat and there a bleat, and
A boo hoo here and a boo hoo there,
Here a boo and there a boo, and
A suke suke here and a suke suke there,
Here a suke and there a suke, and
A gee ho here and a gee ho there,
Here a gee and there a gee, and O pretty maids, won't you come and go with me
To the sweet fields of Violo!

Sweet fields of Violo, Tending to my father's geese That swam in the ponds of Violo.
With a shoo shoo here and a shoo shoo there,
