W:Come sit you down upon my knee, W:and tell to me the very reason W:why I am slighted so by thee. W: W:I am in love I cannot deny it. W:My heart lies troubled in my breast. W:It's not for me to let the world know it. W:A troubled heart can find no rest. W: W:I put my hand to a cask of brandy. W:It was my fancy, so to do, W:for when I am drinking, I'm seldom thinking, W:and wishing Peggy Gordon was here. W: W:I wish I was away in Ingo, W:far across the briny sea, W:sailing over deepest ocean, W:where love and care ne'er bother me. W: W:I wish I was in a lonely valley, W:where womenkind cannot be found, W:where all the small birds they change their voices, W:and every moment a different sound. W: W:Oh Peggy Gordon, you are my darling. W:Come sit you down upon my knee, W:and tell to me the very reason W:why I am slighted so by thee.
