Chorus:
Oh dear! What can the matter be?
Dear, 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 trinket to please me
And then for a smile, he vowed he would tease me
He promised to bring me a bunch of blue ribbons
To tie up my bonnie brown hair.
Chorus:

2. He promised to bring me a basket of posies
A garland of lilies, a gift of red roses
A little straw hat to set off the blue ribbons
That tie up my bonnie brown hair.
Chorus:
