And into her bedroom young Johnny went a-creeping
With his long fol-the-riddle-i-do right down to his knee

She smiled and replied: John, I'm afraid you'll undo me

She laughed in his face when his breeches he fumbled
With his...

She smiled and replied: John, you must take a knife to them

With his...

Before daylight i' the morning Nancy's nightgown he crumpled

Now nine months being past, it fell on a Sunday
A child it was born with a knife-mark in the window
With a long fol-the-riddle-i-do right down to his knee
