Maids, When You're Young, Never Wed an Old Man

An old man came courting me, high-do-oh-darrity
An old man came courting me, me being young
An old man came courting me, then he proposed to me
Maids, when you're young, never wed an old man.

Chorus:
For he had no feloorum, fol-diddle, fol-doorum
He had no feloorum, fol-diddle, fol-dee
He had no feloorum, he lost his ding-doorum
So maids, when you're young, never wed an old man.

When we went to the church, high-do-oh-darrity
When we went to the church, me being young
When we went to the church, he lay there in the lurch
Maids, when you're young, never wed an old man.

Chorus

When we went into bed, high-do-oh-darrity
When we went into bed, me being young
When we went into bed, he lay there as if he were dead
Maids, when you're young, never wed an old man.

Chorus

I put my leg over him, high-do-oh-darrity
I put my leg over him, me being young
I put my leg over him, damn nearly smothered him
Maids, when you're young, never wed an old man.

Chorus

When he was fast asleep, high-do-oh-darrity
When he was fast asleep, me being young
When he was fast asleep, out of bed I did creep
Into the arms of a handsome young man.

Oh he had feloorum, etc.
