lyrics

Oh when’re you going to come see me
Come see me, come see me
Oh when’re you going to come see me
My dear old Nicholas boy

I think I’ll come next Sunday
Next Sunday, next Sunday
I think I’ll come next Sunday
If the weather is good

Oh how long d’you think you’ll court me
You’ll court me, you’ll court me
Oh how long d’you think you’ll court me
My dear old Nicholas boy

I think I’ll court you all night
All night, all night
I think I’ll court you all night
If the weather is good

Oh when’re we going to get married
Get married, get married
Oh when’re we going to get married
My dear old Nicholas boy

I think we’ll marry in a week
In a week, in a week
I think we’ll marry in a week
If the weather is good

Oh what’ll we ride to the wedding in
To the wedding in, to the wedding in
Oh what’ll we ride to the wedding in
My dear old Nicholas boy

I think I’ll bring my log sled
My log sled, my log sled
I think I’ll bring my log sled
If the weather is good

Oh why not bring your buggy
Your buggy, your buggy
Oh why not bring your buggy
My dear old Nicholas boy

The ox won’t work to the buggy
To the buggy, to the buggy
The ox won’t work to the buggy
’Cause I never seen him try

Oh who’re you going to bring to the wedding
To the wedding, to the wedding
Oh who’re you going to bring to the wedding
My dear old Nicholas boy

I think I’ll bring my children
My children, my children
I think I’ll bring my children
If the weather is good

Well I didn’t know you had any children
Any children, any children
Well I didn’t know you had any children
My dear old Nicholas boy

Oh yes I have six children
Six children, six children
Oh yes I Have six children
Joe Jim John Sally and the baby

Run and tell Aunt Mary
Aunt Mary, Aunt Mary
Run and tell Aunt Mary
The old grey goose is dead

The one that she’s been saving
Been saving, been saving
The one that she’s been saving
To make a feather bed
