Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Love Won't You Marry Me?

(Love Will You Marry Me?)
(Johnny Will You Marry Me?)
Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

Love will you marry me, marry me, marry me,
love will you marry me, and take me out of danger?
No I won't marry you, marry you, marry you,
no I won't marry you, for why you are a stranger.
Why didn't you tell me so, why didn't you tell me so,
why didn't you tell me so, before you did the harm?
What harm did I do, what harm did I do,
what harm did I do, but roll you in my arms?

Love will you marry me, marry me, marry me,
love will you marry me, and take me out of danger?
No I won't marry you, marry you, marry you,
no I won't marry you, for why you are a stranger.
Why didn't you tell me so, why didn't you tell me so,
why didn't you tell me so, what in the world delayed you?
How could I tell you so, how could I tell you so,
for if I would have told you then I surely couldn't have gained you.

Who'll mend my socks and shirts, my socks and shirts, my socks and shirts,
Who'll mend my socks and shirts and feed me in the morning?
I won't mend your socks nor shirts, your socks nor shirts, your socks nor shirts,
I won't mend your socks nor shirts nor feed you in the morning.
Why didn't you tell me that, tell me that, tell me that,
Why didn't you tell me that before I sold the farm.
I didn't tell you that, tell you that, tell you that,
I didn't tell you that for fear you'd do me harm.

What on earth will happen me, happen me, happen me,
What on earth will happen me, I thought you were my darlin'.
Who cares what happens ya, happens ya, happens ya,
Who cares what happens ya, you never were my darlin'.

Chorus:
Some say the devil is dead, the devil is dead, the devil is dead,
Some say the devil is dead and buried in Killarney.
More say he rose again, more say he rose again,
more say he rose again, and joined the British army.

Feed the pigs and milk the cow, milk the cow, milk the cow,
Feed the pigs and milk the cow, so early in the morning.
Tuck your leg up, Paddy, dear. Paddy, dear, I'm over here!
Tuck your leg up, Paddy dear, It's time to stop your yawning

Chorus

Katie, she is tall and thin, tall and thin, tall and thin.
Katie, she is tall and thin. She likes a drop of brandy.
Drinks it in the bed at night, drinks it in the bed at night,
drinks it in the bed at night, it makes her nice and randy.

Chorus

My man is six foot tall, six foot tall, six foot tall,
My man is six foot tall, he likes his sugar candy.
Goes to bed at six o'clock, goes to bed at six o'clock,
goes to bed at six o'clock, he's lazy, fat and dandy.

Chorus

My wife, she has a hairy thing, a hairy thing, a hairy thing.
My wife, she has a hairy thing, she showed it to me Sunday.
She bought it in the furrier shop, bought it in the furrier shop,
bought it in the furrier shop, it's going back on Monday.

Chorus
