Ballads and Songs of Michigan
When country girls for judges set, And leaves don't fall till February, When the miller does his toll forget, Fair maid, with you will I be married.
"When fishes in green fields are feeding, And swans around dry rocks are swimming, When fishes in green fields are feeding, And swans around dry rocks are swimming, When Scotland is by men removed, And England into France is carried, When every girl proves true to her word, Fair maid, with you will I be married.
"Maddam," said I, "Don't seem to frown, Or think that I am at your pleasure, For as for a wife I do not want, Sweethearts I can get at my leisure; When whales in little dishes swim And casdes on their backs do carry, When dogs turn men, and not till then, Fair maid, with you will I be married."
