Hey Hum, take this sum,
Don’t throw it away like a useless gum.
Hey Hum, to market you go,
Promise not to sway near any show.
Hum, you buy a drum,
Bring it back home without acting dumb.
Hum Hum, the drum you play,
Entertain the mob on my wedding day.
Hum, I know your heart,
I do understand you are crying apart.
Hum, I know you love me,
Amidst the celebration I saw you gloomy.
But Hum, you are a servant’s son,
Don’t create a fuss, your place you learn.
See Hum, my fiancé is rich,
He rules from the palace, you lay in the ditch.
So Hum, I am sorry for the crime,
All that was just to pass the time.
And Hum, forget all the talks,
I no love you anymore, forget all long walks.
Poor Hum, just take this sum,
Do as I say, without acting dumb.
