484. Song—Saw you my dear, my Philly
 
 
Tune—“When she cam’ ben she bobbit.”
 
 
  O SAW ye my Dear, my Philly?
  O saw ye my Dear, my Philly,
She’s down i’ the grove, she’s wi’ a new Love,
  She winna come hame to her Willy.
 
  What says she my dear, my Philly?        5
  What says she my dear, my Philly?
She lets thee to wit she has thee forgot,
  And forever disowns thee, her Willy.
 
  O had I ne’er seen thee, my Philly!
  O had I ne’er seen thee, my Philly!        10
As light as the air, and fause as thou’s fair,
  Thou’s broken the heart o’ thy Willy.
