Whistle, Daughter, Whistle

 
Em  
Mother, I long to get married, 
  H7           Em 
I long to be a bride;
                       Am 
I long to be with that young man, 
    Em          H7   
for ever by his side;
Em 
Forever by his side, 
      Am 
O how happy I should be;
    Em 
For I'm young and merry 
                           H7   Em 
and almost weary of my vir-gini-ty. 
 
2. Whistle, daughter, whistle, 
and you shall have a sheep.
I cannot whistle mother, 
but I can sadly weep.
My maidenhood does grieve me, 
it fills my heart with fear;
For it is a burden, a heavy burden, 
it's more than I can bear. 
 
3. Whistle, daughter, whistle, 
and you shall have a cow.
I cannot whistle mother, 
indeed I know not how.
My maidenhood does grieve me, 
it fills my heart with fear.
For it is a burden, a heavy burden, 
it's more than I can bear. 
 
4. Whistle, daughter, whistle, 
and you shall have a man.
(Whistle)........, you see how well I can.
You nasty impudent jade, 
what makes you whistle now?
I'd rather whistle for a man 
than either sheep or cow.
