As I went out a bright morning
to take a pleasant walk.
I sat down beside on an old stone wall
just to hear two lovers talk.
For to hear two lovers talk, my love
To hear what they might say.
So I might learn a little more, love
before I go away.

  Chorus:
P it stands for Paddy, I suppose.
J for my love John.
W stands for false Willy O
But Johnny is the fairest man.
"Johnny is the fairest man," she said
"Johnny is the fairest man,
I donft care what anybody says
For Johnny is the fairest man."

Well come and sit beside me, love
Beside me on the green
It's a long three quarters of a year or more
Since together we have been
Since together we have been, my dear
Together we have been
It's a long three quarters of a year or more
Since together we have been

"Oh, I'll not sit beside you,love
Now or any other time
For I hear you love another little lass
and your heart's no longer mine.
"And your heart's no longer mine," she said
"Your heart's no longer mine.
I don't care what anybody says
Your heart's no longer mine."

  Chorus

So I will climb a high, high tree,
And I rob a wild bird's nest.
Back I'll bring what I find there
To the girl I love best," he said
"The girl I love best
Back I'll bring what I find there
"To the girl I love best."

  Chorus
