Madam I'm a Darling

As I came down to Chester City
in the dark hour late at night
who should I meet but a fair young maiden
washing her clothes by the broad moon light

Madam I'm a darling a-di-ro-didero
Madam I'm a darling a-di-ro-dee

First she washed them then she squeezed them
then she hung them up to dry
then she folded up her arms
saying what a nice young girl am I

Madam I'm a darling . . .

Going to the well for a pail of water
bringing it home foe t make the tea
she fell over I fell under
all the game was above the knee

Madam I'm a darling . . .

Madam I will tie your garter
I'll tie it above the knee
if you like I'll tie it up farther
madam I'm a darling a-di-ro-dee

Madam I'm a darling . . .

Madam you have gold and silver
madam you have tracts of land
madam you ships on the ocean
all you need is a nice young man

Madam I'm a darling . . .
