Down by the river
(Esther Ofarim, 1967)

watch video of it here:

Down by the river where the green grass grows
there sits Mary washing her clothes.
She sings, she sings, a song so sweet,
and calls her playmates up and down the street.

Patrick, Patrick, won't you come to tea?
Come next Saturday at half past three.
Teacakes, pancakes and everything you'll see,
oh won't we have a jolly time at half past three.
