7   "O am I your doctor? You sent for me, so The reason of this I long for to know." "Yes, you are my doctor, can kill or can cure; Without your assistance, I'm ruined I'm sure."
8    "O Sally, O Sally, O Sally," said he,
"O don't you remember how you slighted me?
You would speak so disdainful and treat me with scorn,
And now I'll reward you for time past and gone."
9   "For time past and gone, love, forget and forgive, And grant me awhile longer in this world to live." "I'll never forgive you as long as I've breath,
And I'll dance on your grave whilst you moulder in earth."
10    "O Jemmie, O Jemmie, O Jemmie," said she, "I'll freely forgive you, although you won't me." Then off from her fingers pulled diamond rings three, Saying, "Take them and wear them while dancing on my
grave."
11    "O Sally, O Sally, O Sally," said he,
"I'll freely forgive you if you'll forgive me. Come, cheer up, my jewel, and we will agree, And we will be married and merry we'll be."
