Good morrow, Gossip Joan,
Where have you been a-walking?
I have for you at home,
I have for you at home
A budget full of talking,
Gossip Joan.

My sparrow's flown away
And will no more come to me;
I've broke a glass today,
I've broke a glass today;
The price will quite undo me,
Gossip Joan.

I've lost a Harry groat
Was left me by my granny;
I cannot find it out,
I cannot find it out;
I've searched in every cranny,
Gossip Joan.

I've lost my wedding ring
That was made of silver gilded;
I'd drink would please a king,
I'd drink would please a king
But that my cat has spilled it,
Gossip Joan.

My pocket is cut off
That was full of sugar candy;
I cannot stop my cough,
I cannot stop my cough
Without some cherry brandy,
Gossip Joan.
