    If pretty maids could run like hares on the mountain
    They would laugh for to see the young men run a-hunting

    Chorus:
         Sing whack fol the diddle,
         Whack fol the diddle,
         Whack fol the diddle I do.


    If pretty maids could fly like blackbirds and thrushes
    They would laugh for to see the young men beat the bushes

    Chorus:
         Sing whack fol the diddle,
         Whack fol the diddle,
         Whack fol the diddle I do.


    If pretty maids could swim like ducks on the water
    They would laugh for to see the young men wobbling after

    Chorus:
         Sing whack fol the diddle,
         Whack fol the diddle,
         Whack fol the diddle I do.
