“One and Twenty” Lyrics

When I was one and twenty
I heard a wise man say
Give crowns and pounds and guineas
But not your heart away
Give pearls away and rubies
But keep your fancy free
But I was one and twenty
No use to talk to me

When I was one and twenty
I heard him say again
The heart out of the breast
Was never given in vain
It’s sold for sighs aplenty
And paid with endless rue
And now I’m two and twenty
And oh, oh, ’tis true
