"Early one morning, a bittersweet lyric with a deceptively upbeat melody, tells of false promises and deception. It probably dates from the eighteenth century and is quoted in 1859 by WilliamChappell (Popular Music of the Olden Time), as being ‘one of the three most popular songs among the servant-maids of the present generation’. It is here given a rather melancholic treatment, ending simply and sadly, as it began. You can hear the men promising to be ever faithful in measures 56–63, underneath the girls’ plaintive reproach."
