VERSE 1
O, who will shoe your feet, my love
An' who will glove your hand
Who will kiss your rosy cheeks
When I'm in a foryun land

VERSE 2
My father will shoe my feet, my love
My Mother will glove my hand
An' you may kiss my rosy cheeks
When ya return from th foryun land

VERSE 3
O hush, O hush, you break my heart
I hate to hear you cry
For th best of lovers sometimes part
O, why not you and I

VERSE 4
If I prove false to you, my love
Th rocks will softly melt
Th sun will freeze like ice, my love
An' th waves of th sea shall burn
