“Jimmy Mo Veela Sthore (Jimmy, My Thousand Treasures)”


The singer misses Jimmy, who "travels the wide world o'er" on a quest for wealth. Her parents "never do give me ease." They want her to marry someone rich. She would go to the woods where no one will tease her and stay there until Jimmy returns
