The Keys of Heaven
10 I won't accept your house and land, That I may have at my own command, And I won't marry you, etc.
ii I'll give to you the keys of my heart That we may marry and never part, If you will marry me, etc.
12   I won't accept the keys of your heart That we may marry and never part, And I won't marry you, etc.
13   I'll give to you the keys of my desk
That you may have money at your request, If you will marry me, etc.
14   I will accept the keys of your desk That I may have money at my request, And I will marry you, sir, you,
And I will marry you.
15   You love coffee and I love tea,
You love my money, but you don't love me, And I'll not marry you, Miss, you, And I'll not marry you.

2   I don't accept your paper of pins, If this is the way our love begins, And I won't marry you, O you, And I won't marry you.
3   I'll give to you a little red shawl,
And you may dance with the ladies all, If you will marry me, etc.
