When I Met A Pretty Young Maid

When I met a pretty young maid
Who said, “my beauty ’twill most surely fade.
Life ’tis like the poor flower,
Which lasts but a brief hour”,
I said, “your looks they will surely degrade!”.

When I Met A Pretty Young Maid

When I met a pretty young maid
Who on a violin played,
And I asked, “can I fiddle?”
She played “Hey Diddle Diddle,
And said, sir, “you have not yet paid . . .”.
