Come little girl let's go get married,
My love is so great, how can you slight me,
I'll work for you both late and early,
And at our wedding my little bride you'll be.
Oh Willie dear, let's both consider,
We're both too young to be married now,
When we're married, we're bound together,
Let's stay single just one more year.
He went to the bar where she was dancing,
A jealous thought came to his mind,
I'll kill that girl, my own true lover,
'fore I let another man beat my time.
He went to the bar and called her to him,
She said "Willie dear, what you want with me",
Come and drink wine with the one that loves you,
More than anyone else you know, said he.
While they were at the bar a-drinking,
That same old thought came to his mind,
He'd kill that girl, his own true lover,
He'd give her poison in a glass of wine.
She laid her head over on his shoulder,
Said "Willie dear, please take me home,
That glass of wine that I've just drinken,
Has gone to my head and got me wrong".
He laid his head over on the pillow,
Let me read you the law let me tell you my mind,
Molly dear, I'm sorry to tell you,
We both drank poison in a glass of wine.
They folded their arms around each other,
They cast their eyes unto the sky,
Oh G-d, oh G-d, ain't this a pity,
That both true lovers are bound to die.
