AMERICAN BALLADS AND SONGS
O I'll not marry a man who's rich, For he'd get drunk and fall in a ditch, And I'll not marry at all, at all, And I'll not marry at all.
0 I'll not marry a man who's poor, For he'd go begging from door to door, And I'll not marry at all, at all, And I'll not marry at all.
O I'll not marry a man who chews, For he'll go slobbering from chin to shoes, And I'll not marry at all, at all, And I'll not marry at all.
0 I'll not marry a man who smokes, For that would not please the old folks, And I'll not marry at all, at all And I'll not marry at all.
Yes, I'm determined to live an old maid, I'll take my stool and sit in the shade, And I'll not marry at all, at all, And I'll not marry at all.
