Lyrics for 'There Was an Old Woman'

There was an old woman,
As I've heard tell,
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol
She went to market,
Her eggs for to sell.
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol
She went to market,
All on a market day,
And she fell asleep,
Upon the King's Highway.
Fol de rol de lol, lol, lol, lol, lol,
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol.

And there came a peddler,
Whose name was Stout,
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol
He cut her petticoats,
All round about.
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol
He cut her petticoats,
Up to her knees,
Which made the little woman,
Shiver and freeze.
Fol de rol de lol, lol, lol, lol, lol
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol.

And when this old woman,
Began to wake,
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol
She began to shiver,
And she began to shake.
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol.
She began to wonder,
She began to cry,
"Oh deary me!,
This can never be I!"
Fol de rol de lol, lol, lol, lol, lol
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol.

"But if it be I,
As I hope it may be,
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol
I've a dog at home,
That I'm sure knows me.
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol
And if it be I,
He will wag his tail,
And if it's not I,
He will bark and wail."
Fol de rol de lol, lol, lol, lol, lol
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol.

Home went the old woman,
All in the dark,
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol
Then up got her dog,
And began to bark.
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol
He began to bark,
She began to cry,
"Deary me, dear!
This is none of I."
Fol de rol de lol, lol, lol, lol, lol
Fol, lol, diddle, diddle, dol.
