Ballads and Songs
Boy I'll give to you a dress of red, Bound around with golden thread, If you will marry me, oh, me, If you will marry me.
Girl I won't accept the dress of red, Bound around with golden thread, And I won't marry you, oh, you, And I won't marry you.
Boy I'll give to you a coach of four, And every horse as white as snow, If you will marry me, oh, me, If you will marry me.
Girl I won't accept the coach of four, And every horse as white as snow, And I won't marry you, oh, you, And I won't marry you.
Boy I'll give to you a coach of six, And every horse as black as pitch, If you will marry me, oh, me, If you will marry me.
Girl I won't accept the coach of six, And every horse as black as pitch, And I won't marry you, oh, you, And I won't marry you.
Boy I'll give to you a dress of blue, And golden strings to tie your shoe, If you will marry me, oh, me, If you will marry me.
