Molly dear, now don’t be sighing,
Molly, dear now don’t be sad,
Winter days, will soon be flying,
Spring will come and you’ll be glad;
Through the fields we’ll roam together,
To the church just down the lane,
Though ‘tis dark and stormy weather,
Spring-time dear will come again.

When the flowers bloom in springtime, Molly bye and bye,
We’ll go roaming in the gloaming ‘neath a summer sky,
Down in clover land we’ll wander we’ll be happy don’t you fear;
When the flowers bloom in spring-time,
In the spring-time dear.

Molly dear, the birds are singing,
Molly dear, the world is gay,
Marriage bells, will soon be ringing,
For this is our wedding day;
Sweet heart mine the sun is shining,
Let me whisper once again,
As I did when you were pining,
Spring-time dear will come again.
