On a bright summer’s day.

A sweetheart, a sweetheart.

On a bright summer’s day.

Now Jenny choose a bridesmaid,
A bridesmaid, a bridesmaid.

On a bright summer’s day.

Now Jenny choose a pageboy,
A pageboy, a pageboy.

On a bright summer’s day.

Now Jenny choose a parson,
A parson, a parson.

On a bright summer’s day.

Now Jenny shall be married,
Be married, be married.

On a bright summer’s day.
