[Verse 1]
Jack and Jill went up the hill,
Jill was a farmer’s daughter,
Jack came down, that day from town,
And followed her up to court her,
Said Jill to Jack, “If I marry you,
Some brave thing you must do,”
Said Jack, That’s true then I’ll marry you,
That’s the bravest thing a man could do;
But for you

I’ll do anything, dear, in the world for you,
I’ll do any one too, that you tell me to,
I wouldn’t do much for Mary for Sarah, Sal or Sue,
But I’ll do anything dear in the world for you.

[Verse 2]
Jack and Jill came down the hill,
Hearts both as light as laughter,
But why not, had not Jack got,
The girl that he was after Said Jill,
“I’ve promised to marry you,
Tell me, quick tell me true;

Said Jack, “No, father’s quite hard to do;
