I will not try to defeat the onward march of technology by out-performing machinery, out-calculating computers, out-communicating cellphones or any other way,

If I mess around with a girl such as Nelly Bly I will NOT do it in a neighborhood where I will be recognized.

If I find that the games are going on in Duncan's saloon, I'll let it ride for another time, or talk to him about it after I have had some rest.

Well, if my name is Naomi I will stay away from John Lewis, no matter WHAT he promises me.

And if I am the youngest of two sisters, my father prefers me, and my sister is jealous, I will steer clear of water.

And I will tell the devil to tie up my wife before he takes her down to hell because that way she can't kick the demons around.

And if I am on a ship named the Golden Vanity, I will be very careful and talk to the messmates first.

And, if I am a fair maid about seventeen, who must 'list in the navy for to serve the queen...I'll get some fake warts or something to that no one will fall in love with me!

And...if my name is Janet I will tell my father that I really can't talk right now, and then escape through the window or something before he makes me take off my dress.

If my baby sends me a train ticket, I won't head into town for one last round.

I'm going to pick myself up a pair of good rubber-soled work boots (the antithesis of slippery city shoes) right away, in case I end up working on the towboats again, since I can't really promise not to hit on 17 no matter who's dealing.

*written with a braille keyboard* I will never(again) be enticed to to go "sleepy" in any field or meadow infested with birds and butterflys no matter how many pretty little horses are promised!

If I ever get my hand on a dollar again, I'm going straight away to the casino with it, and place it on 37 black.

I am not going to lock my heart in a box of golden- too hard for the paramedics to get into.

I will never again have a lover who is a logger-they leave you out in the cold.

I will not dress in anything long, black or veilish and walk the hills,black make me look "haggard",and besides I have better things to do.

I will never get a yellow cat, an old blue dog, or hold a snake to my bosom-too messy and I'm allergic.

I don't CARE who killed Cock Robin, nor do I particularly wish to know about the funeral arrangements!

I will not stop at three sons, I will aim for at least eight so the youngest will not be burdened with a destiny!

Any young man coming down in a Creel to me will be met with a blazing fire at the bottom!

I will not go abroard for pleasure, I prefer to confine forign trips to buisness meetings only.

I will listen to my mother, especially when she gives me advice about love.

I do not like to rise when the sun she rises!

I will get an ISA to ensure that I have enough money to remain the fair flower of Northumberland no matter how many handsom young Scots I cross the border with.
