Duke of Gordon's three daughters  (1850-1860) 
All round my Hat

All Round My Hat.

Al round my hat I vear's the green villow,
All round my hat for a twelvemonth and a day,
If any vone should ax me the reason vy I vears it
I te ls them that my true love is far far avay,
Twas a going of my rounds in the street I first d dmeet her,
oh, I thought she was an angel just come down from the sky,
Spoken,—She'd a nise' wegitable countenance,
turnip nose, reddish cheeks, and carroty hair,
And never heard a woice more louder and sweeter
Vhen she cried, buy my primroses, primroses, come buy,
Spoken--Here's your fine cauliflowers.
All round my hat, &c,
Spoken—Here's your precious turnips,
oh, now my love, she vos fair an she was kind toe,
o cruel was vos the cruel judge vot had my love try,
For thieving vos a thing she never was inclin'd to,
But he sent my love across the seas far, far avay
Spoken—Here's your hard hearted cabbages
All round my hat; &e.
For seven long years my love and I are parted,
For seven long years my love is bound to stay,
Spoken—'Tis a precious long 'fore I gets any trade to day,
Bad luck to that chap vot'd cv r be false hearted,
o I ll love my love tho' she's far far avay,
Spoken—Here's your nice heads of celery,
All round my hat, &c,
There's some young men so preciously deceitful
A coaxing of the young gals they vish to lead astray,
Spoken—Do you vant any valnuts; crack 'em and try 'em a shilling a hundred,
As soon as they ve deceived 'em so cruelly they leave them,
And never sighs nor sorrows vhen they're far far avay
Spoken—Do you vant any hinions to day marm,
All round my hat, &c.
oh I bought my ove a ring on the werry day she started,
Vich Igove her as a token all to remember me
Spoken—Bless her eyes,
And vhen she does come back ve',l never more be parted,
But ve'll marry and be happy, oh, for ever and a day,
Spoken--Here's your fine spring raddishes,
All round my hat, &c,
