Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Love Will You Marry Me?

(Love Won't 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'.
