The chorus goes (abbreviated)
To the weaver's gin ye go, fair maids
I rede you right gang ne'er at night.
In English If you go to the weaver's, fair maids, I advise you well,
never go at night.
I'm afraid (as is the singer of the song) that marriage isn't in
it, having been with the weaver one night the girl finds herself
Experience teaches that it doesn't
