Melody - D'Urfey's "Pills to Purge Melancholy", 1719
One ev'ning a little before it was dark,|
Sing tan ta ra ra ra tan tiv ee.
I called for my gelding and rid to Hyde Park,
On tan ta ra ra ra tan tiv ee.
It was in the merry month of May,
When meadows and fields were gaudy and gay,
And flowers apparelled as bright as the day,
I got on my my tan ti vee!
