Elsie Marley


Do you ken [know] Elsie Marley, hinny [honey],
The wife that sells the barley, hinny;
She lost her basket and all of her money,
Aback of the bush in the garden, hinny.

Elsie Marley’s grown so fine,
She won’t get up to feed the swine.
She lies in bed till eight or nine,
Surely she does take her time.

Elsie Marley is so neat,
It’s hard for one to walk the street
But every lad and lass they meet
Says, “Do you ken Elsie Marley, hinny?”
