lyrics

O Sally my dear it’s you I’ve been missing
O Sally my dear it’s you I’d be kissing
She smiled and replied “you don’t know what you’re missing”

O Sally my dear I wish I could wed you
O Sally my dear I wish I could bed you
She smiled and replied “then you’d say I’d misled you”

If all you young men were like hares on the mountain
If all you young men were like hares on the mountain
How many young girls would take guns and go hunting

If all you young men were like fish in the water
If all you young men were like fish in the water
How many young girls would undress and dive after

If all you young girls were like dew on the barley
If all you young girls were like dew on the barley
How many young men would awake and plow early

But the young men are given to frisking and fooling
But the young men are given to frisking and fooling
So away while you can, girls, attend to your schooling
