VP_016979 Verse 1Auntie sent me marketing On a morning in the Spring, Birds were twittering tralala! Gaily twittering tralala! "Go, my child", she said, "and get Eggs to make an omelette, And some cabbages tralala!" Nice green cabbages tralala! "If you're spoken to by men, You must never answer them!" I had hardly gone on my way When somebody said, "Goodday!" He said it twice, and looked so nice! Ah! Said he, "My dear, Your shoe, I fear, Will trip you on your face. I see the lace Coming down will you, will you Let me tie up your shoe?" Said I, "Young man, I'd say you can, But auntie told me I Must not reply, She has such good sense, good sense, For she's had experience!" Said she, "My dear, I sadly fear That you have been, in truth, With some wild youth, You had better say just say, Where you have been today!" Said I, "Dear Aunt, I fear I can't Quite tell you where I've been, And what I've seen, But in consequence, sequence, Well, I've had experience!" Verse 2On the road we stopp'd awhile, Resting on a wayside stile, Birds were twittering tralala! Gaily twittering tralala! He was sitting at my feet, Said my ankles were so neat That was flattery tralala! Artful flattery tralala! Close beside me then he sat, Put his arm around like that And he said he wanted to see What color my eyes might be! He had to go so near, you know! Ah! Said he, "My love, The sun's above, And in an open spot We shall be hot; Do you think we could, we could Go walking in the wood?" Said I, "Young man, I like the plan, But I am sure my aunt Would say "You shan't!" She would take offence, offence, For she's had experience!" Said she, "My dear, I sadly fear That you have been, in truth, With some wild youth, You had better say just say, Where you have been today!" Said I, "Dear Aunt, I fear I can't Quite tell you where I've been, And what I've seen, But in consequence, sequence, Well, I've had experience!" Verse 3When we wan dered home again, How he kissed me, in the lane! Birds were twittering tralala! Gaily twittering tralala! Auntie met me at the gate, Said, "My child, you're very late! What! no cabbages? tralala! No, no cabbages tralala! What's the meaning, pray, of this? Did I hear just now a kiss?" "Auntie, that you couldn't have heard, It must have been just a bird; They chirp like me tweettweettweettwee!" Ah! Said she, "My dear, I sadly fear That you have been, in truth, With some wild youth. You had better say, just say Where you have been today!" Said I, "Dear Aunt, I fear I can't Quite tell you where I've been, And what I've seen, But in consequence, sequence, Well, I've had experience!" Said she, "My dear, I sadly fear That you have been, in truth, With some wild youth, You had better say just say, Where you have been today!" Said I, "Dear Aunt, I fear I can't Quite tell you where I've been, And what I've seen, But in consequence, sequence, Well, I've had experience!"
