No, no a thousand times no,
You cannot buy my caress,
No, no a thousand times no,
I'd rather die than say yes!

A village maiden And wicked Sir Jasper song, unfortunately I dont know the rest of it

Here's what I could pick out, it's a 1937 recording by Elsie Carlisle and is part of a medley:

No, no a thousand times no
You cannot buy my caress
No, no a thousand times no
I'd rather die than say yes

I am a child of the valley
(indistinct lyric)...the maiden you see
He was a desperate Desmond
Who owned all the town property
He would pursue me through hill and through dells
I and I was just wise to his game
Each time he would threaten "You'll wed me or else"
These are the words I'd explain

No, no, a thousand times no
You cannot buy my caress
No, no a thousand times no
I'd rather die than say yes!


Hope this is helpful. A friend believes he may have the sheet music, and will try and look it out this afternoon for more of the words.

NO! NO! A THOUSAND TIMES NO!
By Al Sherman, Al Lewis and Abner Silver
Copyright 1934 by Leo Feist, Inc.

She was a child of the valley.
An innocent maiden was she.
He was a desperate Desmond
Who owned all the town property.
He would pursue her through hills and through dells,
But she was wise to his game.
Each time he threatened "You'll wed me or else,"
These were the words she'd exclaim:

CHORUS: "No! No! A thousand times no!
You cannot buy my caress!
No! No! A thousand times no!
I'd rather die than say yes."
SPOKEN: Two, three, four.

Ah! but this poisonous villain,
He wouldn't leave her alone.
Said, "Either join me in wedlock
Or I'll kick you out of your home."
She knew her people so feeble and old
Needed a roof o'er their heads.
Winter would soon bring the snow and the cold,
Yet she defied him and said: CHORUS

That night he crept up to her window
And oh! how that villain could creep!
He stole her out of her boudoir
And kidnapped her while fast asleep.
He tied the gal to the old railroad track.
The milk train was rushing down the hill.
She cried to him, "Though my future looks black,
You buzzard, my answer is still: CHORUS

Now she loved the young village blacksmith.
A muscular young "he-man" was he.
He heard that his love was in danger
And right to the rescue flew he.
He grabbed his darling in "thee" nick of time
And yelled, "This is my future wife!"
The villain sneered, "Blacksmith, that maiden is mine!"
The hero cried, "Not on your life!" CHORUS

Now this is the end of our story.
Her honor was left without stain.
The hero took her to the altar.
The villain was foiled once again.
The mortgage was paid and the handsome young swain
Moved in with her folks right away.
Their life is contented though simple and plain
And no more will she have to say: CHORUS

I found a recording by Leslie Sarony of YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS, available from an Australian website: Crystal Stream Audio. It also includes NO, NO, A THOUSAND TIMES NO.

Can you quote any lyrics from YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS, other than the title? (Google gives 19000 hits on the phrase "years and years and years" and I'd like to narrow it down.)

From memory of a 78 I had years ago that got broken,

'A nice folding bed we had hidden away,
For years and years and years,
To put up our friends if they wanted to stay
For years and years and years,
But sorry to say like the mistletoe bough
Something went wrong with the spring somehow
And ?????........?????
For years and years and years

There was a music hall song by Joe Tabrar published in 1909 called 'For Months and Months and Months', but I realise this is only one twelfth of an answer.

Guest 29th April 0638AM - You would be better off starting a new thread with this request as it may well be missed in the middle of the Leslie Sarony thread.
