Stephen

I fell in love with Stephen 
I fell in love just with him
Let me, mummy, marry him!

Heya, hoya, heya, heya, hoya
Let me marry, my mum! 

When he looks at me I faint
How long I‘ve been waiting for him
I can’t say!

Heya, hoya, heya, heya, hoya
Let me marry, my mum! 

Because I have, dear mummy 
Chosen just him
Because I couldn’t fall in love
With any other boys

Heya, hoya, heya, heya, hoya
Let me marry, my mum! 

Get married, girls, when boys propose to you
Let not evil tongues 
Slander you in the village!
