lyrics

I gave to you a hen
You gave it back again
Without it's eggs, my Annie.
I gave to you a hair
You really didn't care
Now it has no legs, my Annie.

Oh Annie, let me in
I'll fly I will swim
I'll die if you don't come near me
Oh no, don't you say so
You are my dear, my Annie

I gave to you a dog
You threw for it a log
Now it won't come back, my Annie.
I gave to you a pig
It wasn't very big
Now the meat's all black, my Annie.

Oh Annie, let me in
I'll fly I will swim
I'll die if you don't come near me
Oh no, don't you say so
You are my dear, my Annie

I gave to you a cow
You really don't know how
It flew away, my Annie?
I gave to you a horse
A silly fool, of course
For you rode away, my Annie.

Oh Annie, let me in
I'll fly I will swim
I'll die if you don't come near me
Oh no, don't you say so
You are my dear, my Annie

I gave to you my heart
You tore it all apart
When you rode away, my Annie

Oh Annie, let me in
I'll fly I will swim
I'll die if you don't come near me
Oh no, don't you say so
You are my dear, my Annie
Let me in
I'll fly I will swim
I'll die if you don't come near me
Oh no, don't you say so
You are my dear, my Annie
