All Around My Hat

All around my hat I will wear the green willow
All around my hat for a twelvemonth and a day,
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love who is far, far away
Fare thee well cold winter and fare thee well cold frost
Nothing have I gained but my own true love I've lost
I'll sing and I'll be merry when occasion I do see
He's a false deluding young man, let him go farewell he.
The other night he brought me a fine diamond ring
But he thought to have deprived me of a far better thing
But I being careful like lovers ought to be
He's a false deluding young man, let him go farewell he
Here's a half a pound of reason, and a quarter pound of sense
A small sprig of time and as much of prudence
You mix them all together and you will plainly see
He's a false deluding young man, let him go farewell he.
Recorded by Steeleye Span on All Around My Hat.
Note: This hit the pop charts in England in 1975 and made
     the Top Five, the highest chart placing ever for a traditional
     song. An amalgam of Farewell He and All 'Round My Hat. It works,
     though.
