There was an old woman and there was an old man They live upon the high road He once sat as a jockey for his pay And she was her mother's darling-o And on we go, and on we go Can you recall the day we married oh On we go, and on we go Wouldn't you be frightened to die alone Come a little closer to me darling-o Come with me you silly old man Cozy as a codfish oh I've never seen anyone sour as you at least not after breakfast oh She grabbed the old man by the hand She lead him 'cross a moonlit night She took him to the public house And filled him full of whiskey - o And on we go, and on we go Can you recall the day we married oh On we go, and on we go Wouldn't you be frightened to die alone Come a little closer to me darling-o And on the way back home from town Oh, oh my darlin' oh She pushed him in the water and she held him down Can you recall the day we married-o And on we go, and on we go Can you recall the day we married oh On we go, and on we go Wouldn't you be frightened to die alone Come a little closer to me darling-o There was an old woman and there was an old man They lived upon the highroad He once sat as a jockey for his pay... And she was her mother's darlin' 0
