One O' Clock the Gun Went Off

One o'clock! the gun went off,
I cannot stay no longer,
If I do, my ma will say
I play with the boys up yonder;
My stockings red, my garters blue,
My boots all bound with silver,
A red, red rose upon my breast
And a gold ring on my finger.

Heigh ho! for Lizzie, O;
My bonnie Lizzie, O;
If I had but one to choose,
I'd choose my bonnie Lizzie, O.
