AMERICAN BALLADS AND SONGS 227
" I'll not accept the paper of pins, If that's the way that love begins, And I'll not marry, I'll not marry. I'll not marry you."
"I'll give thee a little lap dog, That'll go with you when you go abroad, If you'll but marry, if you'll but marry, if you'll but marry me."
"I'll not accept the little lap dog, To go with me when I go abroad, And 111 not marry, I'll not marry, I'll not marry you."
"I'll give to thee a coach and four, With every horse as white as snow, If you'll but marry, if you'll but marry, if you'll but marry me."
" I'll not accept a coach and four,
With every horse as white as snow,
And I'll not marry, I'll not marry, I'll not marry you."
I'll give to thee a coach and six, With every horse as black as pitch, If you'll but marry, if you'll but marry, if you'll but marry me."
"I'll not accept the coach and six,
With every horse as black as pitch,
And I'll not marry, I'll not marry, I'll not marry you."
