I Asked Her For Her Name (The Landsmen)

As I woke up in the May morning,
In the May morning bright early,
I saw my love upon the bed,
I asked her for her name, oh;
I asked her for her name,
She wouldn't say a thing,
I saw my love upon the bed,
I asked her for her name.

As I strolled out in the old town oh,
In the May morning bright early,
I saw my love out in the street,
I asked her for her name, oh;
I asked her for her name,
She wouldn't say a thing,
I saw my love out in the street,
I asked her for her name.

My memory was lacking, boys,
I asked her for her name,
I had a pint too many, boys,
I asked her for her name;
She looked at me and smiled so sweet,
But wouldn't say a thing,
I asked her for her name, me boys,
I asked her for her name.

As I walked down to the waterfront,
In the May morning bright early,
I saw my love out on the pier,
I asked her for her name, oh;
I asked her for her name,
She wouldn't say a thing,
I saw my love out on the pier,
I asked her for her name.

As I went up to the old alehouse,
In the May morning bright early,
I saw my love come bouncing in,
I asked her for her name, oh;
I asked her for her name,
She wouldn't say a thing,
I saw my love come bouncing in,
I asked her for her name.

My memory was lacking, boys,
I asked her for her name,
I had a pint too many, boys,
I asked her for her name;
She looked at me and smiled so sweet,
But wouldn't say a thing,
I asked her for her name, me boys,
I asked her for her name.

As I woke in the May morning,
In the May morning bright early,
I saw my love upon the bed,
I asked her for her name, oh;
I asked her for her name,
She wouldn't say a thing,
I saw my love upon the bed,
I asked her for her name.

My memory was lacking, boys,
I asked her for her name,
I had a pint too many, boys,
I asked her for her name;
She looked at me and smiled so sweet,
But wouldn't say a thing,
I asked her for her name, me boys,
I asked her for her name.

My memory was lacking, boys,
I asked her for her name,
I had a pint too many, boys,
I asked her for her name;
She looked at me and smiled so sweet,
But wouldn't say a thing,
I asked her for her name, me boys,
I asked her for her name.
