This is a very popular Renaissance Faire drinking song that is worded as a warning to young women to never marry an old man, he's just not up to it!

Maids, When You're Young

Traditional


Because he's got no faloorum, faliddle aye oorum

He's got no faloorum, faliddle aye ay

He's got no faloorum, he's lost his ding-doorum

So maids when you're young never wed an old man


An old man came courting me, hey ding-doorum down

An old man came courting me, me being young

An old man came courting me, fain he would marry me

Maids when you're young never wed an old man


Because he's got no faloorum, faliddle aye oorum

He's got no faloorum, faliddle aye ay

He's got no faloorum, he's lost his ding-doorum

So maids when you're young never wed an old man


When we went to church, hey ding-doorum down

When we went to church, me being young

When we went to church, he left me in the lurch

Maids when you're young never wed an old man


Because he's got no faloorum, faliddle aye oorum

He's got no faloorum, faliddle aye ay

He's got no faloorum, he's lost his ding-doorum

So maids when you're young never wed an old man


When we went to bed, hey ding-doorum down

When we went to bed, me being young

When we went to bed, he lay like he was dead

Maids when you're young never wed an old man


Because he's got no faloorum, faliddle aye oorum

He's got no faloorum, faliddle aye ay

He's got no faloorum, he's lost his ding-doorum

So maids when you're young never wed an old man


When he went to sleep, hey ding-doorum down

When he went to sleep, me being young

When he went to sleep, out of bed I did creep

Into the arms of a handsome young man


And I found his faloorum, faliddle aye oorum

I found his faloorum, faliddle aye ay

I found his faloorum, he's got my ding-doorum

So maids when you're young never wed an old man
