When That I Was And A Little Tiny Boy

When that I was and a little tiny boy
With a hey-ho, the wind and the rain
A foolish thing was but a toy
For the rain it raineth every day

But when I came to man's estate
With a hey-ho, the wind and the rain
'Gainst knaves and thieves men shut their gate
For the rain it raineth every day

But when I came, alas, to wive
With a hey-ho, the wind and the rain
By swaggering I could never thrive
For the rain it raineth every day

But when I came unto my beds
With a hey-ho, the wind and the rain
With tosspots still had drunken heads
For the rain it raineth every day

A great while ago, the world began
With a hey-ho, the wind and the rain
But that's all one, our play is done
And we'll strive to please you every day
To please you every day
