A wandering minstrel, I.
Full of joy and laughter.
With a song and a dance.
I play, and romance.
The beautiful girls of Lancaster.

I fall in love every day,
With whoever I may.
Never get to marry.
Love them, and leave them.
Stay single, stay happy.

Every day I rejoice.
Because of my choice.
Just myself, to consider.
This is the way to be.
Stay single stay happy.

I need no one.
No not I.
I am myself sufficient.
All the things a woman does.
I am myself proficient,
Stay single stay happy.

You lovers, arm in arm.
Full of charm.
I wish you, happiness.
But it ends up, in a mess.
And you are alone.
Stay single stay happy.

A merry guy, am I.
I am forever gay.
Love them and leave them.
I say, stay this way.
Stay single stay gay.
