2 I went unto her father's house Just like a clever fellow,
I told her that the plums and grapes were ripe, Yes, they were fine and mellow.
3 She says : My dear, my dearest dear, There's something else to betray us, My father dear is on his way,
And he'll be sure to see us.
4 But if the highest tree it's you could climb, Till he gets out of sight, sir,
It's then we'll go to yonders grove And spend one happy hour.
5 The tree was rough, he climbed so tough, And on the top he stopped, sir,
And every jerk he tore his shirt, And on the top he stopped, sir.
6 As she went trippling over the plains, She looked so neat and active.
And there he sot in the top of the tree Almost raving distracted.
