My sweetheart come along
Don't you hear the fond song
The sweet notes of the nightingale flow?
You shall hear the fond tale
Of the Sweet Nightingale
As she sings in the valley below.

2. Pretty Betty don't fail,
For I'll carry your pail
Safe home to your cot as we go.
You shall hear the fond tale
Of the Sweet Nightingale,
As she sings in the valley below.

3. "Pray, let me alone,
I have hands of my own;
Along with you sir, I'll not go
For to hear the fond tale
Of the Sweet Nightingale,
As she sings in the valley below."

4. "Pray, sit yourself down
With me on the ground,
On this bank where the primroses grow.
You'll hear the fond tale
Of the Sweet Nightingale,
As she sings in the valley below."

5. The couple agreed
To be married with speed,
And soon to the church they did go.
No more she's afraid
For to walk in the shade,
Or to sit in those valleys below.
