2 'Twas down in yond' valley together we sat, And passed away the hours in curious chat, I told her 1 lov'd her, I hop'd she lov'd me too, So we'd love one another, for we'd nothing else to do, &c.

She hung down her head, and with blushes replied,
I lov'd you from the first, you must make me your bride;
Without hesitation I made her this vow,
I'll marry you my dear, for I've nothing else to do, &c.
So to the next village away we did roam,
In search of a clergyman, we found him at home,
I paid him his fee, he made one of us two,
And married us straightway, for he'd nothing else to do, &c.
We liv'd in felicity, in joy and content,
And never knew the sorrows of those that do repent,
Our neighbors around us, were loyal and true,
And we lov'd one another, for we'd nothing else to do, &c.
The change which time has brought, I should tell you in this place,
Our table is too small and our cottage wanting space;
We've a healthy rosy laughing set of lads and lasses too,
And we love the little rogues that caused us something else to do, &c.
