Oh where have you been all the day
My boy Willie?
Oh where have you been all the day?
Oh Willie won't you tell me now?
I've been all the day courting of a lady gay
But she is too young to be taken from her mother.

Oh can she brew and can she bake
My boy Willie?
Oh can she brew and can she bake?
Oh Willie won't you tell me now?
She can brew and she can bake
She can make a wedding cake
But she is too young to be taken from her mother.

Oh can she knit and can she spin
My boy Willie?
Oh can she knit and can she spin
Oh Willie won't you tell me now?
She can knit and she can spin
She can do most anything
But she is too young to be taken from her mother.

Oh how old is she now
My boy Willie
Oh how old is she now?
Oh Willie won't you tell me now?
Two times six, two times seven
Two times twenty and eleven
But she is too young to be taken from her mother.
