One Misty Moisty Morning Lyrics

(traditional)One misty moisty morning when cloudy was the weatherI met
with an old man a-clothed all in leatherHe was clothed all in leather with a
cap beneath his chin Singing how do you do and how do you do and how
do you do againThis rustic was a thresher as on his way he hide And with
a leather bottle fast buckled by his sideHe wore no shirt upon his back but
wool unto his skinSinging how do you do and how do you do and how do
you do againI went a little further and there I met a maidA-going a-
milking, a-milking Sir she saidThen I began to compliment and she began
to singSaying how do you do and how do you do and how do you do
againThis maid her name was Dolly clothed in a gown of greyI being
somewhat jolly persuaded her to stayAnd straight I fell a-courting her in
hopes her love to winSinging how do you do and how do you do and how
do you do againI having time and leisure, I spent a vacant hourA-telling of
my treasure while sitting in the bowerWith many kind embraces I stroke
her double chinSinging how do you do and how do you do and how do
you do againI said that I would married be and she would be my brideAnd
long we should not tarry and twenty things besideI'll plough and sow and
reap and mow and you shall sit and spinSinging how do you do and how
do you do and how do you do againHer parents then consented, all parties
were agreedHer portion thirty shillings, we married were with speedThen
Will the piper he did play whilst others dance and singSaying how do you
do and how do you do and how do you do againThen lusty Ralph and
Robin with many damsels gayDid ride on Roan and Dobbin to celebrate
the dayAnd when they met together their caps they off did flingSinging
how do you do and how do you do and how do you do and how do you
doagain
