O will you wear white, O my dear, O my dear?
O will you wear white, Jennie Jenkins?
I won't wear white, for the colour's too bright.
I'll buy me a fol-di-rol-dy,
til-di-tol-dy, seek a double,
use a cause-a-roll to bind me.
Roll, roll, roll, Jennie Jenkins, roll.
O will you wear red, O my dear, O my dear?
O will you wear red, Jennie Jenkins?
I won't wear red, its the colour of my head.
O will you wear green, O my dear, O my dear?
O will you wear green, Jennie Jenkins?
I won't wear green, its a shame to be seen.
O will you wear blue, O my dear, O my dear?
O will you wear blue, Jennie Jenkins?
I won't wear blue, I'd be just like you.

Roud 731. I'd guess this example to be from the Lomax collection, but I can't check that at the moment.
