AMERICAN BALLADS AND SONGS 215
0 he came one night to see me,
And he made so long a stay, That I really thought the blockhead
Never meant to go away.
With my life alure a lickem, etc.
0 he told me of devotion,
Of devotion pure and deep, And he talked so awful silly
That I nearly fell asleep.
With my life alure a lickem, etc.
0 he told me of a cottage,
Of a cottage by the seas, And then, would you believe it,
Why, he tumbled on his knees.
With my life alure a lickem, etc..
0 I knew I couldn't love him,
But the very deuce is in it; For he says if I refuse him,
Why, he couldn't live a minute.
With my life alure a lickem, etc.
And you know the blessed Bible
Plainly says we mustn't kill; So I've thought the matter over,
And I kind of think—I will.
With my life alure a lickem, etc.
