I WONDER WHEN I SHALL BE MARRIED

I wonder when I shall be married
Oh be married, oh be married
I wonder when I shall be married
For my beauty's beginning to fade

My mother she is so willing
Oh so willing, oh so willing
My mother she is so willing
For she has four daughters besides

My father has forty good shillings
Oh good shillings, oh good shillings
My father has forty good shillings
And they will be mine when he dies

My shoes have gone to be mended
Oh to be mended, oh to be mended
My shoes have gone to be mended
And my petticoat's gone to dye green

And they will be ready by Sunday
Oh by Sunday, oh by Sunday
And they will be ready by Sunday
Oh say, won't I look a queen

A cup, a spoon, and a trencher
Oh a trencher, oh a trencher
A cup, a spoon, and a trencher
And a candlestick made out of clay

Oh say, won't I be a bargain
Oh a bargain, oh a bargain
Oh say won't I be a bargain
For someone to carry away

I wonder when I shall be married
Oh be married, oh be married
I wonder when I shall be married
For my beauty's beginning to fade
