Katy Cruel (2)

Katy Cruel (2)

CHO: All that I am, that I would be
         Then I would be what I am not
         But I am what I must be
         What I would be, I can not
         Oh little lallie day, oh the little lee oh day

When first I came to town
They called me the roving jewel
Now they've changed their tune:
They call me Katy Cruel

I know who I am
I know who's goin' with me
I know who I love
But the Lord knows if I'll marry
Oh little lallie day, oh the little lee oh day

(chorus)
When first I came to town
They brought me the bottles plenty
Now they've changed their tune:
They bring me the bottles empty

I'll dye my petticoats red
And face them with the yellow
Then I'll tell all the lads
My own heart I will follow

Oh little lallie day, oh the little lee oh day
(chorus)

It's down the road I go
And through the boggy mire
Straight way 'cross the town
And to my heart's desire

So hush, my pretty one
For you I'll ne'er be sorry
The heart of all my joy
Is the heart of all my worry

Oh little lallie day, oh the little lee oh day
(chorus)
