"The Humor is on Me Now"

words and music by Richard Hayward

  Oh, as I went out one mornin' --
It bein' the month of May --
A farmer and his daughter
I spied upon me way.
And the girl sat down quite calmly
To the milkin' of her cow,
Sayin' I will and I must get married
for the humor is on me now.

Oh, the humor is on me now.
Oh, the humor is on me now.
Sayin' I will and I must get married
for the humor is on me now.

So at last the daughter married --
She married well-to-do --
And loved her darlin' husband
For a month, a year or two.
But Sean was all a tyrant,
And she quickly rued her vow,
Sayin' I'm sorry I ever got married
for the humor is off me now.

Oh, the humor is off me now.
Oh, the humor is off me now.
Sayin' I'm sorry I ever got married
for the humor is off me now.
