Oh dear, what can the matter be

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