Good Morning, My Pretty Little Miss
7   I never will believe another man, County, city nor town,
Unless the gallows was around him tied, And wishing himself safe down.
8   For girls can go to market town, Go dressed so neat and fine,
While me a poor girl must stay at home And rock the cradle and spin.
9   I can sing as lonesome a song As any little bird in the cage.
O sixteen weeks astray have been gone, And scarcely fifteen years of age.
