3 3 -2” 2 3 4 -4 4 2
I am a broken hearted milkman
3 -2” 2 -1 1
In grief I’m arrayed
4 -4 3 5 5 -4 3
Through keeping of the company
-3 -3 4 -3 -3” 3
Of a young servant maid
-2-2” 23 4 -4 4 4 3
Who lived on board and wages
3 -3” -4 -4 3
The house to keep clean
4 -4 5-4 -55 -44 -4 -3”
In a gen-tle-man’s family
4 3 -3” -3 4
Near Pattington Green

Chorus:
3 3 -2” 2 2 4 4 -4 4 4 3
She was as beautiful as a butterfly
3 -3 -4 -4 3
And proud as a queen
4-4 5 -4 -5 5 -4 4 -4 -3”
Was pretty lit-tle Pol-ly Perkins
4 3 -3” -3 4
Of Pattington Green

Verse 2:
She’d an ankle like an antelope
And a step like a deer
A voice like a black bird
So mellow and clear
Her hair hung in ringlets
So beautiful and long
I thought that she loved me
But I found I was wrong

(Chorus)

Verse 3:
When I’d rattle in the morning
And cry milk below
At the sound of my milk cans
Her face she did show
With a smile on her countenance
And a laugh in her eye
If I’d thought that she loved me
I’d have laid down to die

(Chorus)

Verse 4:
When I asked her to marry me
She said “Oh what stuff”
And told me to drop it
For she’d had quite enough
Of my nonsense at the time
I’d been very kind
But marry a milkman
She didn’t feel inclined

(Chorus)

Verse 5:
The man that has me must
Have silver and gold
A chariot to ride in
And be handsome and bold
His hair must be curly
As any watch spring
And whiskers as big as
A brush for clothing

(Chorus)

Verse 6:
The words that she uttered went
Straight through my heart
I sobbed and I sighed
And I straight did depart
With a tear on my eyelid
As big as a bean
I bid farewell to Polly
And to Paddington Green

(Chorus)

Verse 7:
In six months she married
This hard hearted girl
But it was not a Wi-count,
And it was not a Nearl
It was not a Boronite,
But a shade or two wuss
It was a bow legged conductor
Of a tuppenny bus.

(Chorus)
