I'll sing you one-ho! Green grow the rushes-ho!

What is your one-ho? One is one and all alone and evermore shall it be so.

One is one and all alone and evermore shall it be so.

Two, two the lilly-white boys. One is one and all alone and evermore shall it be so.

One is one and all alone and evermore shall it be so.

I'll sing you seven-ho! Green grow the rushes-ho!

One is one and all alone and evermore shall it be so.
