Subject: RE: sage words from folksongs - pay heed!
It is no jesting with edged tools!

Save your money while you're young, me boys....

Never kiss a beggar more.

N'en fais pas de ton fils un matelot!

A warning take, you sailors bold: the black schooner roams, death's cargo in her hold.

Don't never marry a mother's daughter, for she'll grieve you forever more.

Before you try cowpunching, go kiss your wife, take a heavy insurance on your life--then shoot yourself with a butcher knife! (It's far the easiest way.)

And you can't marry ten pretty girls!
