Joseph was an old man,
And an old man was he,
When he wedded Mary,
In the land of Galilee.

O then bespoke Mary,
So meek and oh, so mild:
Pluck me one cherry, Joseph,
for I am with child.'

O then bespoke Joseph,
With words most unkind:
Let him pluck thee a cherry
That brought thee with child.'

O then bespoke the baby,
Within his mother's womb:
Bow down then the tallest tree,
For my mother to have some.'

Then bowed down the highest tree
Unto his mother's hand­­­
Then she cried, See, Joseph,
I have cherries at command.'

O then bespoke Joseph:
I have done Mary wrong
But cheer up, my dearest,
And be ye not cast down.'

Then Mary plucked a cherry,
as red as any blood,
Then Mary she went homewards
all with her heavy load.
