Year
1974
Notes

From the Traditional Tune Archive: It is played at a walking or march tempo, and is similar to Bonaparte's Retreat.

Happy is the miller boy that lives by the mill,

The wheel goes around of with a free goodwill.

One hand in the hopper and the other in the sack,

The ladies step forward and the gents step back.
