Love is pleasing and love is teasing

Love is a pleasure when first is new

But when it gets older it sure goes colder

And fades away like the morning dew.

Cho: Love is a teasing and love is pleasing
And love is a treasure when first it's new
But as it grows older then love grows colder
And fades away like the morning dew


I wish I wish but I wish in vain

I wish I were a maid again

But a maid again, Ill never be

Until apples grow on that ivy tree

I left my Father, I left my Mother
I left my sisters & brothers too
I left my friends and my kind relations
I left them all for to go with you.

Love and porter makes a young man bolder

Love and whisky makes him old and grey

What cant be cured love must be endured love

And we are bound for Americay


But the sweetest apple is the soonest rotten

And the hottest love is the soonest cold

And what cant be cured love must be endured love

And my true love Ill now more behold

Oh turn around love, your wheel of fortune
Oh turn around love and smile on me
For surely there must be a place of torment
for that young girl who deceiv-ed me

Oh lads beware of your false true lovers
and never mind what the young girls say
They're like the stars on a summer's morning
you think they're near but they're far away.
