Down In the Fields Where the Buttercups All Grow – Michael Cooney (SingOut! 19/1, p.13)

Down in the fields where the buttercups all grow,
Oh, Mary Green loves me and I love her true,
We blush when we meet like all true-lovers do,
Beneath the plantation where cool meadows run,
We sit in the dark and we have lots of fun,
Oh, Mary she thought I was bashful and slow,
But she changed hr mind when I let myself go,
Down in…

We went for a walk down a long winding path
The rhubarb grew sideways to let us walk past
There we walked through the trees and the, birds up above
Were all busy dropping their tokens of love.
Down in...

Me girl friend and I went behind a haystack
When a bumblebee flew down the small of her back
I saw what had happened and in my distress
I shoved me right hand down the back of her dress.
Down in...

Me hand down her back when she struck me a blow
1 didn't know that bee was so far below
Down in...

The songsters were singing to the day newly born
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn
And when sheep and/cows have been around there a bit
It's not a nice place for a lady to sit.
Down in...

A cow lickin' Mary's face tickled her so
She thought it was me and said, "Don't slobber so"
Down in...

A ten gallon barrel on top of the hill
Came crashing towards us, my heart it stood still
But Mary stood bravely unflinching and true
Her legs were so bandied the barrel went through.
Down in...

Our courtship was swift and our honeymoon slow
The bed was so small that we both had to go
Down in the fields where the buttercups all grow.
