don't sing love songs you'll wake my mother
she's sleeping here right by my side
and in her right hand, a silver dagger
she says that I can't be your bride

all men are false so says my mother
they'll tell you wicked, loving lies
and the very next evening they'll court another
leave you alone to pine and sigh

my daddy he is a handsome devil
he's got a chain five miles long
and on every link, a heart does dangle
of another maid he's loved and wronged

go find another tender maiden
and hope that she will be your wife
for I have been warned, and I've decided
to sleep alone all of my life
