lyrics

farewell cold winter and farewell cold frost
since nothing have i gained but my true love i've lost
farewell cold winter and farewell frost
for what can i gain if he's lost
you'll hear me sing when occasion i do see - wo-oh let him go farewell he

he thought i should speak to him as i did pass by
sooner than i'll humble to him i would lay me down and die
he thought i should speak to him as i passed by
sooner than i'll humble to my love i'd die
you'll hear me sing when occasion i do see - wo-oh let him go farewell he

last night he brought to me a fine diamond ring
thinking to deprive me of some far better thing
but he was not so skillful as a lover ought be
i'll defy the lad for ever - farewell he
you'll hear me sing when occasion i do see - wo-oh let him go farewell he

if he has got another lover for all to see
he is welcome to stay with her and think no more of me
if he has got another love and they do not agree
I’ll defy the lad forever - let him be!

if he has got another lover for all to see
he is welcome to stay with her and think no more of me
if he has got another love and they do not agree
I’ll defy the lad forever- let him be!
you'll hear me sing when occasion i do see - wo-oh let him go farewell he

oh the cuckoo she's a pretty bird
she sings as she flies
(ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo)
she brings us glad tidings
and she tells us no lies
