This and other 'minstrel' songs became very popular in Cornwall, where many of the choirs sing a version called Little Liz' or Little Eyes, with the chorus:

Little Liz', I love you, honey, Little Liz', I love you, honey
Love you in the summer and the fall (honey, honey, honey)
Little Liz', I love you, honey, Little Liz', I love you, honey
Love you the best of all

In fact, it's become so popular that it's looked on as part of the Cornish tradition these days.

Lhiuish,
