Quotation by unknown author

When I was a bachelor, I lived by myself
And I worked at the weaver's trade;
The only, only, thing that I ever did wrong
Was to woo a fair young maid.
I wooed her in the winter time,
And in the summer too;
And the only, only thing that I ever did wrong
Was to keep her from the foggy, foggy dew.
