    As I roved out walking one evening last May
    A charming young damsel I met on my way
    She had jewellery and riches,
    she had diamonds and gold
    And she said she was a virgin,
    only nineteen years old

    I quickly fell in love with this beautiful dame
    I asked where she came from, and she told me that same
    In three weeks we were married,
    and the church bells, they tolled
    I was married to a virgin,
    only nineteen years old

    On awakening next morning,
    I thought I would faint
    When she scraped from her two cheeks a full pound of paint
    And on her left shoulder a hump I behold
    "Oh," sayd I, "You're a daisy, only nineteen years old?"

    She pulled out her fingers 'til she left only three
    She screwed off her right leg right over the knee
    She pulled off her false wig,
    her bald head I behold
    Oh good God Almighty,
    only nineteen years old

    She pulled out her eyebrow which was black and sublime
    She pulled out her false teeth which was only nine
    She pulled out her glass eye,
    on the carpet it rolled
    Oh bad luck and damnation to your nineteen years old

    Now all you young fellas,
    when for marriage you go
    Examine your true love from the top to the toe
    And if you don't do that,
    like me you'll be sold
    To a damsel not nineteen, but a ninety year old
    This song was submitted on September 1st, 2005.
