Songs > Old Woman Who Lived Under a Hill (Lolly Lo)

Lolly Lo

C                        G                  C        G 
There was an old woman lived under a hill
C                            G
Lolly, lolly, lolly lolly lo
   F                           C
If she's not dead she lives there still
C                             G           C
Lolly lo, lolly lo, lolly lolly lolly lo

A jolly young man came riding by
Lolly, lolly, lolly lolly lo
He called for a pot for he was dry
Lolly lo, lolly lo, lolly lolly lolly lo
He called for a pot, and then another
Lolly, lolly, lolly lolly lo
He kissed the daughter before the mother
Lolly lo, lolly lo, lolly lolly lolly lo

And when the day was gone and spent
Lolly, lolly, lolly lolly lo
He bed the daughter with the mother's consent
Lolly lo, lolly lo, lolly lolly lolly lo

What is this all hard and warm?
Lolly, lolly, lolly lolly lo
'Tis bald my nag, he'll do y' no harm
Lolly lo, lolly lo, lolly lolly lolly lo
And what is this? 'Tis a little well
Lolly, lolly, lolly lolly lo
From which my nag may drink his fill
Lolly lo, lolly lo, lolly lolly lolly lo
And what perchance if your nag falls in

Lolly, lolly, lolly lolly lo
Grab hold of the grass that grows by the rim
Lolly lo, lolly lo, lolly lolly lolly lo
And what perchance if the grass should fail?
Lolly, lolly, lolly lolly lo
Push him in by the head, pull him out by the tail
Lolly lo, lolly lo, lolly lolly lolly lo
