Thread Name: Lyr Req: Strawberry Fair
Subject: RE: Lyrics to Strawberry fair needed
The re-write from "Songs of the West" posted by Malcolm Douglas is missing the third verse, according to the lyrics in Baring Gould and Sharp, "English Folk-Songs for Schools," 1906.

Your cherries soon will be wasted away,
Singing, singing, buttercups and daisies,
Your roses wither and never stay,
'Tis not to seek such perishing ware,
That I am tramping to Strawberry Fair.
