    Lyrics

    One misty moistly morning when cloudy was the weather
    I met with an old man a-clothed all in leather
    He was clothed all in leather with a cap beneath his chin
    Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

    This rustic was a thresher as on his way he hied
    And with a leather bottle fast buckled by his side
    He wore no shirt upon his back but wool unto his skin
    Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

    I went a little further and there I met a maid
    A-going a-milking, a-milking Sir she said
    Then I began to compliment and she began to sing
    Saying how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

    This maid her name was Dolly clothed in a gown of grey
    I being somewhat jolly persuaded her to stay
    And straight I fell a-courting her in hopes her love to win
    Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

    I having time and leisure, I spent a vacant hour
    A-telling of my treasure while sitting in the bower
    With many kind embraces I stroke her double chin
    Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

    I said that I would married be and she would be my bride
    And long we should not tarry and twenty things beside
    I'll plough and sow and reap and mow and you shall sit and spin
    Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

    Her parents then consented, all parties were agreed
    Her portion thirty shillings, we married were with speed
    Then Will the piper he did play whilst others dance and sing
    Saying how do you do and how do you do and how do you do again

    Then lusty Ralph and Robin with many damsels gay
    Did ride on Roan and Dobbin to celebrate the day
    And when they met together their caps they off did fling
    Singing how do you do and how do you do and how do you do
    And how do you do again
