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
Say's that I can't be your bride
All men are false, says my mother
They'll tell you wicked, loathsome lies
The very next evening, they'll court another
And leave you all alone to pine and cry
My daddy is a handsome devil
He wears a chain, five miles long
And on each link, a heart does dangle
For another maid, he's loved and wronged
Go court another tender young maiden
I'm sure that she can be your bride
For I have been warned and I've decided
To sleep alone for the rest of my life
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
