What brought you into my room, to my room, to my room?
What brought you into my room? says the mistress unto Dan.
I came here to court your daughter ma'am,
I thought it no great har ma'am,
Oh, Dan, me dear, you're welcome here,
I thank you ma'am, says Dan.

2. How come you to know my daughter, my daughter, my daughter?
How came you to know my daughter, says the mistress unto Dan.
Goin' to the well for water, ma'am,
To raise the can I taught her, ma'am.
Oh, Dan, my dear, you're welcome here.
I thank you ma'am, says Dan.

3. Oh then, you can have my daughter, my daughter, my daughter,
I'll let you take my daughter, says the mistress unto Dan.
And when you take my daughter, Dan,
Of course you'll take me also, Dan.
Oh, Dan, my dear, you're welcome here,
I thank you ma'am, says Dan.

4. This couple they got married, got married, got married,
This couple they got married, Miss Elizabeth and Dan.
And now he keeps her mother and father
And his charmer, O.
And they're known throughout the country
By the name of "Thank ye, Ma'am."
