It's Better to Be Single Than a Poor Man's Wife

It's when I was single, sure I used to sport and play
But now I am married, sure the kids is in me way.

cho: It's a weary, weary life.
     It's a weary, weary life
     And it's better to be single
     Than a poor man's wife.

Before I got marrried, sure I used to sport and play
But now I am married, sure the kids is in me way.

cho:
Before I got  married, sure I used to wear a shawl
But now I am married, sure it's hanging in the pawn.

cho:
When I got married, sure I had a hat and veil
And now that I am married, sure I've rages to me tail.

cho:
Before I got married, sure I had a standing bed
And now that I'm married, sure I've straw to me head.

cho:
When I was single I used a powder puff,
And now that I'm married, I cannae afford the stuff.

cho:
