Lyrics

I'd lost all the breath within me
As I went up on the hill
When there she was, with a sad expression
Saying, oh my name is Jill
And I can't find how to get some water
Can you help me? Say you will!
For your time I will reward you
And you know I surely will

How could I refuse a lady
When she'd put it quite so well?
There was I in a situation
With no-one around to tell
So all that day, I put some water
In the bucket by the well
When she smiled, I felt her harder
But on the way I fell... down

Down – right down the bottom
Ooh ooh ooh – right down the bottom

I didn't mind spilling all the water
If I'd satisfied myself
There the time didn't really matter
It could have been somebody else
She would say I will reward you
And even thought it cost a crown
Now I find my life is sweeter
Every time I fall down...

So all that day, I put some water
In the bucket by the well
When she smiled, I felt her harder
But on the way I fell... fell... fell... fell...

Down – right down the bottom
Ooh ooh ooh – right down the bottom
