I Long to be Single Again

When I was single, oh, then ! When I was single, oh, then I
Oh ! when I was single my pockets did jingle-
I long to be single again.

Chorus.
Again and again and again, again and again and again;
Oh ! when I was single my pockets did jingle-
I long to be single again.

I took me a wife, oh, then! I took me a wife, oh, then !
I took nie a wife, she's the plague of my life,
And I long to be single again.
Again and again and again, again and again, &c.

My wife took the fever, oh, then ! My wife took the fever, oh, then I
My wife took the fever, I hope it won't leave her,
For I long to be single again.
Again and again and again, again and again, &c.

My wife she died, oh, then! My wife she died, oh, then!
My wife she died, and I laughed till I cried,
For I knew I was single again.
Again and again and again, again and again, &c.

I went to her funeral, oh, then I I went to her funeral, oh, then 1
Sweet music did play, and I danced all the way,
For I knew I was single again.
Again and again and again, again and again, &c.

I took mc another, oh, then : I took me another, oh, then!
I took me another, far worso than the other-
I long for the old one again.
Again and again and again, again and again, &c.

Come, all ye young men who have wives, and all young men who have none,
Be kind to the first, for the second's far worse,
And you'll long for the old one again.
Again and again and again, again and again, &c.
