Traditional
  1. Old woman, old woman, will you go a-shearing?
    Speak a little louder sir I'm very hard of hearing.
    Old woman, old woman, will you go a-weaving?
    Speak a little louder sir my hearing is deceiving.
  2. Old woman, old woman, are you fond of spinning?
    Speak a little louder sir I only see you grinning.
    Old woman, old woman, will you do my knitting?
    Speak a little louder sir or come nearer where I'm sitting.
  3. Old woman, old woman, will you go a-walking?
    I can hear you better now, come nearer while you are talking.
    Old woman, old woman, may I kiss you dearly?
    Lord-a-mercy O my soul I hear you now quite clearly!
