THE MAID OF TOTTENHAM Traditional As I came down from Tottenham Upon a market day 'Twas there I spied a bonny lass Her clothing was so gay Her journey was to London With buttermilk and whey So we both jogged on together, my boys Sing fal the dal diddle al day. God speed fair maid, says I to her You are well overtook At that she cast her head aside And gave to me a look That was as full of lechery As letters in a book And we both jogged on together, my boys Sing fal the dal diddle al day. And as we walked along the road Together side by side This pretty maid of Tottenham Her garter came untied For fear that she might lose it Look out sweetheart, I cried Your garter's coming down my love Sing fal the dal diddle al day. O now you've been so venturesome So venturesome and free O now you've been so venturesome Will you tie it up for me? O yes, o yes, if you'll come To the undergrove with me So we both jogged on together, my boys Sing fal the dal diddle al day. I took her to the undergrove Among the grass so green The fair maid spread her legs so wide That I fell in between Such tying of a garter You have but seldom seen And we both jogged on together, my boys Sing fal the dal diddle al day. O now you've had your will of me Pray tell to me your name Likewise your occupation From where and whence you came My name is Johnny the Rover From Dublin town I came And I live alongside of the Ups and Downs Sing fal the dal diddle al day. So when she came to Tottenham Her butter was not sold By losing of her maidenhead Which made her blood run cold He's gone, he's gone, he's gone He's not the lad for me For he lives alongside of the Ups and Downs Sing fal the dal diddle al day.
