I never really fell in love till I went up to Fakenham fair

And chanced for to meet with a carnival girl a selling the fortunes there

Try for a lamp or a     Spanish shawl or a golden filigree

So swing around the merry-go-round

Give the wheel of fortune a whirl
        D          A           D                  G
The finest prize at Fakenham fair
            D          A           D
Is the pretty carnival girl

Her hair was brown and her eyes were blue and her lips they were soft and red
I’d never seen such a shape as hers and my eyes nearly popped from my head
For I was young and innocent oh but still even I could see
the way she smiled and winked my way said ‘come take a chance on me’


My friends they said well she’s not for you oh what will the old people think
But I took my chance and I won that girl just as quick as an eye could wink
And the finest day in all my life whatever may come to pass
Was the day i went up to Fakenham Fair and won me the carnival lass
