Oh Dear! What Can the Matter Be

Chorus: Oh dear! What can the matter be, Oh dear! What can the matter be, Oh dear! What can the matter be, Johnny's so long at the fair? He promised to buy me a beautiful faring, A gay bit of lace that the lassies are wearing He promised he'd buy me a bunch of new ribbons To tie up my bonnie brown hair. (chorus) He promised to buy me a basket of posies, A garland of lilies, a wreath of red roses, A little straw hat to set off the new ribbons That tie up my bonnie brown hair. (chorus)
