No, Sir, No

No, Sir, No

Tell me one thing, tell me truly
Tell me why you scorn me so,
Tell me why, when asked a question,
You will always answer "No".

cho:    No sir, no sir, no sir, no-oh-oh-oh

No sir, no sir, no sir, no.

My father was a Spanish Merchant
And before he went away
He told me to be sure and answer
"No" to all that you should say

If while walking in the garden
Plucking flowers all wet with dew,
Tell me, would you be offended
If I pluck-ed one for you?

If while walking in the garden
I should ask you to  be mine
Tell me would you be offended
Would you then my heart decline?

cho:    No sir, no sir, no sir, no-oh-oh-oh

No sir, no sir, no sir, no.

A refreshing variant on "Oh No John" (filename [ONOJOHN)
