Bonny Peggy Ramsey that any man may see,
And bonny is her face with a fair freck ­led eye;
With a hey trolodel, hey trolodel, hey trolodel lill,
Bonny Peggy Ramsay that works well at the mill.

Mm Mm Mm Mm Up goes the hopper, and in goes the corn:
The wheel it goes about, and the stones begin to turn.
With a hey trolodel, hey trolodel, hey trolodel lill,
Bonny Peggy Ramsay that works well at the mill.

Neat is her body made, and she hath good skill
And round are her bonny arms that work well at the mill.
