WILL YOU come along, my Phillis dear, too yon blue mountain free
Where the blossoms smell the sweetest, come rove along with me,
It's ev'ry Sunday morning, when I am by your side,
We'll jump into the wagon, and all take a ride,

Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
And we'll all take a ride.

Where the river runs like silver, and the birds they sing so sweet,
I have a cabin Phillis and something good to eat,
Come listen to my story, it will relieve my heart,
So jump into the wagon, and off we'll start,

Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
And we'll all take a ride.

Do you believe my Phillis dear, old Mike with all his wealth,
Can make you half as happy, as I with youth and health?
We'll have a little farm, a horse, a pig and cow,
And you will mind the dairy, while I will guide the plow,

Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
And we'll all take a ride.

Your lips are red as poppies, your hair so slick and neat,
All braided up with dahlias, and hollyhocks so sweet,
It's every Sunday morning, when I am by your side,
We'll jump into the wagon, and all take a ride,

Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
And we'll all take a ride.

Together, on life's journey, we'll travel till we stop,
And if we have trouble, we'll reach the happy top,
Then come with me sweet Phillis, my dear, my lovely bride,
We'll jump into the wagon, and all take a ride,

Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
Wait for the wagon,
And we'll all take a ride.
