All Under the New Mown Hay
As I was going over the fields
   (Mark you well what I do say)
As I was going over the fields
A fair pretty lass came close to my heels
Which caused me to go a-screwin'
And brought me to my ruin,
Which caused me to go a-screwin'
All under the new-mown hay.
When nine long months was over, you see
   (Mark you well what I do say)
When none long months was over, you see
She placed a little one on my knee
Oh! No more I'll go a-screwin etc.
And now this child will want a nurse
(Mark you well what I do say)
And now this child will want a nurse
Which causes me to pull out my purse,
Oh! no more etc.
And now this child must go to school (similarly)
Or else he'll die a natural fool,
Oh! no more etc.And now this child is like to die
I am so sorry I cannot cry,
Oh! Again I'll go a-screwin'
For that's not been my ruin etc.
And now this child is dead, you see,
There's plenty more beer and tobacco for me
Oh! Again etc.From Wanton Seed, Purslow
