All Around My Hat
(Traditional)
CHORUS:
All around my hat
I will wear the green willow.

All around my hat
For a twelvemonth and a day,
And if anyone should ask me
The reason why I'm wearing it:
It's all for my true love
Who's far, far away.

Fare thee well, cold Winter
And fare thee well, cold Frost.
Nothing have I gained
But my own true love I've lost.
So sing and I'll be merry
As occasion I do see.
He's a false, deluded young man
Let him go, fare well he.

CHORUS

The other night be brought me
A fine diamond ring,
But he thought to deprive me
Of a far finer thing.
But I, being careful,
As true lovers ought to be,
He's a false, deluded young man
Let him go, farewell he.

CHORUS
