1. Come little girl let's go get married
My love is so great how can you slight me
I'll work for you both late and early
And at our wedding my little wife you'll be

2. Oh Willie dear, let's both consider
We'll both too young to be married now
When we're married we're bound together
Let's stay single just one more year

3. He went to the bar where she was dancing
A jealous thought came to his mind
I'll kill that girl my own true lover
For I let another man beat my time

4. He went to the bar and he called her to him
Said: Willie dear, what you want with me?
Come and drink wine with the one that loves you
More than anymore else you know, said he

5. While they were in the bar a-drinking
That same old thought came to his mind
He killed the girl his own true lover
He gave her poison in a glass of wine

6. She laid her head over on his shoulder
Said: Willie dear, please take me home
That glass of wine that I've been drinking
Has gone to my head and done me wrong

7. He laid his head over on the pillow
Let me read you the Lord let me tell you one line
Molly, I'm sorry to tell you
We both drank poison in a glass of wine

8. They told their arms around each other
They cast their eyes into the sky
Oh God, oh God, ain't this a pity
That the both true lovers are bound to die?
