DUTCHMAN, DUTCHMAN, WON'T YOU MARRY ME?
"Dutchman, Dutchman, won't you marry me?"
"No, no, no, not I. How can I marry such a pretty little girl
When I have no shoes to put on?"
Away to the shoeshop she did vent
As fast as she could go, Bought him some shoes of the very best kind.
"Now, Dutchman, put them on!
''"Dutchman, Dutchman, won't you marry me?" "No, no, no, not I. How can I marry such a pretty little girl When I have no coat to put on?"
