First Lines I Heard an old Proverb by my Father and Mother, / That going to one Wedding, begets another,
Refrain Come gentle, come simple, come foolish, come witty, / Oh, let me not dye a Maid, take me for pity. [stanzas 1-7] I'll hug thee, I'll kiss thee, and on the Bed tumble, / And you shall not dye a Maid, therefore don't grumble. [stanzas 8-10]
