Oh, Dear, What Can The Matter Be?
English Songs for Children
Oh, Dear, What Can The Matter Be?

(Chorus:)
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.

(Chorus:)
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 bring me a basket of posies,
A garland of lilies, a gift of red roses;
A little straw hat to set off the blue ribbons
that tie up my bonnie brown hair.

(Chorus:)
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.
