Some people say it's jolly
To lead a single life,
But I believe in marriage
And the comforts of a wife,
A wife's the greatest blessing
If she's honest, good and true,
So if you want to marry, boys,
I'll tell you what to do:

Get a little table, get a little chair;
Get a tiny little house in a little square;
Get a little wife, then get a little " tin,"
Get a little cradle just to rock the baby in.

A single man in lodgings
Cannot have much delight,
There's nobody to speak to
When he sits at home at night;
There's nothing to attract him,
Or pass the time away,
He'd quickly find the difference
If he'd list to what I say-and- Chorus.

A married man has comforts
Which a single man has not,
His clothes are all well mended,
And his meals are always hot;
Of course they may have quarrels,
Just an odd one now and then,
It's almost worth while falling out
To make it up again.-Chorus.

There's little use in asking
A girl to marry you,
Unless you have a little coin,
And a home to take her to;
A good wife loves to see her home
Look cosy, clean and nice,
So if you would be happy, boys,
Why just take my advice:-Chorus.
