Oh Dear! What Can the Matter Be?

Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Dear, dear! What can the matter be?
Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Johnny's so long at the fair

He promised to buy me
A trinket to please me
And then for a smile
Oh, he vowed he would tease me
He promised to bring me a bunch of blue ribbons
To tie up my bonny brown hair

Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Dear, dear! What can the matter be?
Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Johnny's so long at the fair

He promised to buy me
A basket of posies
A garland of lilies, a gift of red roses
A little straw hat to set off the blue ribbons
And tie up my bonny brown hair

Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Dear, dear! What can the matter be?
Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Johnny's so long at the fair
