It was in Punjabi Market that first he caught my eye

the fairest prince I e’er had seen -

I went to stand closer by

To buy myself some silken thread I had gone that day

Oh how could I know I would meet him there?

That luck would run my way”

All in Punjabi Market - on that fine summer’s day


I went to pay him eagerly, for to buy my silken thread

and when I complimented his wares,

he smiled, and to me he said

“I have not seen you here before, perhaps I see you again”?

I answered only with a smile, and then went on my way

All in Punjabi Market - on that fine summer’s day


I tried very hard to restrain myself

from frequenting that silk cloth store

but, try as I might, the very next day I went to buy some more.

I tried to pretend as if I’d gone to buy some trim and stays

but the buyin’ of trim did not fool him and this time he bade me stay!

All in Punjabi Market - on that fine summer’s day


I went back and back and back again all the summer long

and by the turning of the leaves our love had grown so strong

‘Til in a day in the autumn cool

and I am sure you can guess

that of the finest and fairest of silk

I made my wedding dress

All in Punjabi Market

I made my wedding dress
