Away with the buff and the blue, and away with the cap and feather;
I want to see my lass who lives in hexhamshire.

Chorus
Off to the sadie skey and over the moss and the mire
I want to see my lass who lives in hexhamshire
Her father loves her well, her mother loves her dearer;
I love her better than them both but, man, I can't get near her.

[Chorus:]

If only I could be lying there aside her
While I watched my dear my arms would be denied her.

[Chorus:]

Her skin is like the silk and her hair is like the silver
Her breast are deep but full, they'll fall when I get near her

[Chorus:]

Of this love of mine, of this love I am weary;
Sleep I can't get none for thinking of my dearie

[Chorus:]

Away with the parson's shilling and away with the cap and feather
I want to see my lass who lives in hexhamshire

[Chorus:]
