O Willie dear let' both consider,
We're both too young to be married now.
When we're married we're bound together.
Lets stay single just one more year.
He wen to the bar where she was dancing.
A jealous thought cam to his mind.
I'll kill that girl my own tru lover.
'Fore I let another man beat my time.
He went to the bar and he called her to him
Said: Willie dear what do you want with me?
Come and dring wine with the one that loves you
More than anyone else you know said he.
While they wer at the bar a-drinking
That same old thought came to his mind.
He killed that girl his own true lover
He gave her poison in a glass of wine.
He laid her head on his shoulder
Said: Willie dear, please take me home.
That glass of wine that I've been drinking
Has gone to my head and done me wrong.
He laid his head over on the pillow
Let me read youletme tell you one line
Molly dear, I'm sorry to tell you
We both drank poison in a glass of wine.
They fold their arms around each other
They cast their eyes unto the sky.
Oh God, oh God, ain't this a pity
That both true lovers are bound to die.
