|A lavish merchant went to the fair:merchant, stingy, drink, fair, merchant, stingy, squeeze
A lavish merchant went to the fair
A lavish merchant, a daring young lad
He stood in the yard, his horse to feed,
And decided to impress the people of this little country town.
In his red shirt, brown and curly haired
He went out on the town, cheerful and drunk.
He collected a circle of beautiful girls about him,
Brought out his wallet, jingling with gold coin
Treating young and old to wine,
Eh! Drink up! Live it up! Live it up!
The girls grimaced and drank it down
Joking, dancing, and singing songs
Girls could be seen dancing 'til dawn
Girls' singing was heard all the way to the river
The lavish merchant sang, whistled
Tapped his foot on the earth
The merchant approached one shy maiden
hugged, kissed and squeezed her arm
Pulled her out of the circle of maidens
She was ashamed before her family and friends
Her friends watched with envy:
"You stubborn girl, happiness is before you!"
The maiden's mother quickly intervened,
She approached the merchant ingratiatingly:
Please sweetie, go easy, stop teasing,
Don't shame or kiss my girl!
The lavish merchant jingled his silver:
"That's okay, I'll find another!"
A lavish merchant went to the fair,
A lavish merchant, a daring young lad.
