The False Young Man A
Sung by Mr. T. Jeff Stockton
2   I can't come in, nor I shan't sit down, For I ain't a moment of time ;
Since you are engaged with another true love, Your heart is no more mine.
3   When your heart was mine, true love, And your head lay on my breast,
You could make me believe by the falling of your arm That the sun rose up in the west.
4  There's many a girl can go all round about And hear the small birds sing,
And many a girl that stays at home alone And rocks the cradle and spin.
5   There's many a star that shall jingle in the west, There's many a leaf below,
There's a many a damn will light upon a man For serving a poor girl so.
