The Girl I Left Behind Me

I'm lonesome since I crossed the hill,
And all the moor and valley,
Such heavy thoughts my heart doth fill,
Since parting with my Sally.
I seek no more the fine and gay,
For each but doth remind me,
How quickly hours did pass away,
With the girl I left behind me.

My Dear Old Mother-In-Law
(same tune as above)

Oh, I took my dear old mother-in-law,
A-bathing in the ocean,
And the way she kicked and splashed about,
It caused a great commotion.
Oh how I laughed, ha, ha, ha, ha,
And goodness, how I gloated,
For one of her legs was made of cork,
And the wrong way up she floated.
