MIDI File

Chorus: To market, to market the whole world is going,
Ev'ryone is awake;
To market, to market the dull and the knowing,
Come and make money and make no mistake;
Men: All our own growing, all fresh and a-blowing,
All: We give a reduction if plenty you take.
Ladies: We're awake,
Men: We're awake,
Ladies: We're awake,
Men: We're awake, we're awake, we're awake,
All: To market, to market the whole world is going,
Ev'ryone is awake;
To market, to market the dull and the knowing,
Men: To market, to market we make.
  We're early to bed, and we're early to rise,
Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
We're first on the scene for the first one who buys,
Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
Ladies: With carrots and cabbages we are supplied,
Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
And quite the best lettuces you ever tried,
All: Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
So pardon our rather extravagant pride,
Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
Ensemble: Come buy, Tra la, Come try, come buy,
All of you young ones, old ones,
Tra la, Come buy, Tra la, Come try, prices are not high,
For the market's beginning
and faith we are pinning on you,
Young and old, come and buy.
Come buy.
