Steeleye Span - All around my hat (1976) All around my hat I will wear the green willow And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it It's all for my true love who's far, far away Fare thee well cold winter and fare thee well cold frost Nothing have I gained but my own true love I've lost I'll sing and I'll be merry when occasion I do see He's a false deluding young man, let him go, farewell he The other night he brought me a fine diamond ring But he thought to have deprived me of a far better thing But I being careful like lovers ought to be He's a false deluding young man, let him go, farewell he and All around my hat I will wear the green willow And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it It's all for my true love who's far, far away It's a quarter pound of reasons and a half a pound of sense A small sprig of time and as much of prudence You mix them all together and you will plainly see He's a false deluding young man, let him go, farewell he and All around my hat I will wear the green willow And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it It's all for my true love who's far, far away All around my hat I will wear the green willow And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it It's all for my true love who's far, far away All around my hat I will wear the green willow And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it It's all for my true love who's far, far away
