Lyrics - Maids When You're Young

An old man came a courting me.
Hey ding a doorum down
An old man came a courting me,
Hey doorum down.
An old man came a courting me,
Fain he would marry me,
Maids, when you're young.
Never wed an auld man.

Chorus:
For they've got no fal-loorum,
Fal-liddle fal-loorum,
They've got no fal-loorum,
Fal-liddle all day.
They've got no fal-loorum.
They've lost their ding-doorum.
So, maids, when you're young,
Never wed an auld man.

Now, when we went to church,
Hey ding a doorum down
Now, when we went to church,
Hey doorum down
When we went to church,
He left me in the lurch
Maids when you're young.
Never wed an auld man.

Chorus

Now, when we went to bed,
Hey ding a doorum down
Now, when we went to bed,
Hey doorum down
Now, when we went to bed,
He lay like he was dead
Maids, when you're young,
Never wed an auld man.

Chorus

Now, when he went to sleep,
Hey ding a doorum down
Now, when he went to sleep,
Hey doorum down
Now, when he went to sleep,
Out of bed I did creep
Into the arms
Of a jolly young man.

Last Chorus:
And I found his fal-looral.
Fal-liddle, fal-looral.
I found his fal-looral,
Fal-diddle all day.
I found his fal-loorum
And he got my ding-doorum
So maids when you're young,
Never wed an auld man.
