As I rode up through London Street

 

Verse 1

As I rode up through London street all on a market day,
As I rode up through London street all on a market day,
'Twas there I met a pretty girl with butter, cheese and whey,
To sing together, 'Derry down dee!'

Verse 2

And as we rode up London street we rode both side by side,
And as we rode up London street her garter came untied,
And for fear that she would lose it these words I then did say,
'Why! Your garter does hang Derry down dee.'

Verse 3

'Then if my garter does hang down you can tie it up,' said she,
'Then if my garter does hang down you can tie it up,' said she,
'Why! So I will,' said I, 'When we come to yonder green grove,
To sing together, 'Derry down dee.'

Verse 4

And when we came to yonder green grove, where the grass it looked so green,
And when we came to yonder green grove, where the grass it looked so green,
A-tying up her garter, the like was never seen,
Sing, Derry down dee! Derry down dee.
