Maids When You're Young Never Wed an Old Man

An old man came courting me
Hey do a dority
An old man came courting me
Me being young
An old man came courting me
All for to marry me
Maids when you're young never wed an old man

   For he's got no faloodorum, fadidledo doorum
   For he's got no faloodoorum, fadidleday
   He's got no faloorum, he's lost his ding doorum
   So maids when you're young, never wed an old man

Now when we went to the church, hey do a dority
When we went to the church, me being young
When we went to the church, he left me in the lurch
Maids when you're young, never wed an old man
Now when we went to our bed, hey do a dority
Now when we went to our bed, me being young
When we went to our bed, he neither done nor said
Maids when you're young never wed an old man

Now when he went to sleep, hey do a dority
Now when we went to sleep, me being young
When we went to sleep, out of bed I did creep
Into the arms of a handsome young man

   And I found his falodoorum, fa didle dodoorum
   I found his faloodoorum, fa didle all day
   I found his falodoorum and he got my dingdoorum
   so maids when you're young never wed an old man
