When That I Was a Little Tiny Boy

When that I was a little tiny boy, with a hey ho, the wind and the rain,
A foolish thing was but a toy, for the rain it raineth ev'ry day,

chorus
With a hey ho, the wind and the rain,
For the rain it raineth e-v'ry day.

But when I came to a man's estate, with a hey ho, the wind and the rain,
'Gainst thieves and knaves men shut their gate, for the rain it raineth every day. chorus

But when I came, alas, to wive, with a hey ho, the wind and the rain,
By swaggering never could I thrive, for the rain it raineth every day. chorus

And when I came unto my bed, with a hey-ho, the wind and the rain,
With toss-pots still had drunken-head, for the rain it raineth every day. chorus

A great while ago the world begun, with a hey ho, the wind and the rain,
But that all one, our play is done, and we'll strive to please you every day. chorus
