When that I Was a Little Tiny Boy

When that I was a little tiny boy
     With a heigh-ho, the wind and the rain
A foolish thing was but a toy
     For the rain it raineth ev'ry day

chorus:        With a heigh-ho, the wind and the rain
               For the rain it raineth ev'ry day.

But when I came to man's estate
     With a heigh-ho, the wind and the rain
'Gainst thieves and knaves men shut their gate,
     For the rain it raineth ev'ry day.

But when I came, alas!, to wive
     With a heigh-ho, the wind and the rain
By swaggering never could I thrive,
     For the rain it raineth ev'ry day.
A great while ago the world begun
     With a heigh-ho, the wind and the rain
But that's all one, our play is done
     And we'll strive to please you every day.
