Verse 1
Nature's queen in nature's scene is you just you.
Oh, pretty Peggy, you know it's true;
Weeping willows sigh and peeping birdies cry,
Sigh for, cry for you, and so do I.

Peggy come out and meet me, dear,
For you know in the spring it's ringtime weather,
Peggy come out and greet me, dear,
We'll roam the plains and country lanes together,
(Sweet girlie) We'll play along the moonlit way,
And as we swing along we'll sing a song of two;
Peggy, you've knocked my heart atwister, little sister,
I love you.

Verse 2
Roses fair perfume the air for you just you.
Oh, pretty Peggy, you know they do;
Violets are blue, they're wild about you, too,
So I'll show I'll be as true to you.
