The Wedding Song

Melody -

Come write me down ye powers above,
The man that first created love,
For I’ve a diamond in my eye,
|: Wherein all my joys and comforts lie. :|

2. I will give you gold, I will give you pearl
If you could fancy me my girl,
Rich costly robes that you shall wear,
|: If you can fancy me, my dear. :|

3. It’s not your gold shall me entice,
To leave off pleasures to be a wife
For I don't mean or intend at all
|: To be at any young man’s call.:|

4. Then, go your way you scornful dame
Since you prove false, I’ll prove the same
For I don't care, but I shall find
|: Some other fair maid to my mind. :|

5. Oh, stay young man don't be in haste
You seem afraid your time will waste,
Let reason rule your roving mind
|: And unto you I will prove kind. :|

6. So to church they went the very next day
And were married by asking as I've heard say
So now that girl she is his wife,
|: She will prove his comfort day and night. :|

7. So now his trouble and sorrow is past
His joy and comfort has come at last,
That girl to him always said, "Nay",
|: She will prove his comfort night and day. :|
