Kitty My Love (1913)

Kitty My Love

Kitty my love will you marry me?
Kitty my love will you go?
Oh Kitty my love will you marry me?
Either say yes or say no.
I ha'e a wee brig o' praties,
An' I ha'e a liggat o' meal,
An' I ha'e a pig in the corner,
An' he's tied to a tuppenny nail.
O! Kitty, my love, will you marry me?
Either say Yes or say No, O!
I ha'e a goose that is hatchin',
Her goose eggs are under the bed,
An' I ha'e a goat that is grazing
High up on the tops o' the hedge,
O! Kitty, my love, will you marry me?
Either say Yes or say No, O!
I ha'e a ballad, a ballad,
It's all about Kitty, my dear.
An' I ha'e my granny's oul' cradle
That she bid me rock in a year.
O! Kitty, my love, will you marry me?
Either say Yes or say No, O!
