Oh lady, oh lady, I´ve come a long way
My feet they are tired, been walking all day
No water, no food, the people all rude
My clothes they are dirty, I´ve worn out my shoes.
Don´t shut the door, don´t turn me away
I won´t ask for much, please let me stay
The night it is cold, the night it is long
At daybreak - I promise - I will be gone.
Oh lady, oh lady, you´re ever so kind
Your food is delicious, I relish your wine
The logs how they crackle in your fireplace
The fire so bright, it lights up your face.
You´re pretty, you´re charming, too good to be true
Your eyes mesmerize, the bluest of blue;
Your hair all golden, your lips a dark red
Oh, what would I give to lie in your bed.
Oh lady, oh lady, you´ve got me all wrong
I swear on my life, I swear by this song
I´m not what you think, don´t show me the door
Oh, please let me stay, I´ll sleep on the floor.
You say your husband soon will be back
And when he is told, he will break my neck
Give me a minute to pack up my bags
I´m already gone, don´t lose your rag.
