O Johnny, Johnny
Lidové písně - Anglické
O Johnny, Johnny, but love is bonny, A little while when it is new, But when it's old, love, it groweth cold, love, And fades away like the morning dew. O Johnny, Johnny, but you are nice, love, In keeping company with me so long, You are the first boy that e'er I had, love, So kiss me, Johnny, before you gang. One kiss of my lips you ne'er shall get, love, For you have caused me sore to sigh, Nor will I grant you that sweet request, love, That oftentimes you did me deny. If you would grant that sweet request, love, My heart, on you, I might then bestow, But as good a lover as you may come, love, So I'll not hinder for you to go. For I have stepped the steps of love, dear, And I have stepped a step too low, Was it to be done that I have tried, It would never be done by me, I know. It's over the moss you need not cross, love, And over the moor you need not ride, For I have gotten a new sweetheart, love, And you may go get yourself a bride. For love does come and love does go, Like a little small bird unto it's nest, Was I to tell you, love, all I know, love, They're far away that I love the best.
