The little Couple

The little Couple.

THERE was a little man,
And he woo’d a little maid,
And he said, little maid will you wed wed wed,
I have little more to say,
Say me either yea or nay,
Little said is soonest mended-ded-ded.

The little maid reply’d;
Little Sir, you’ve little said,
To enduce a little maid to wed, wed, wed,
You must say a little more,
And produce a little ore,
Ere I to the church will be led led, led.

The little man reply'd,
If you’ll be my little bride,
I will raise my little rotes a little higher higher higher,
Though I’ve little for to prate,
Yet my little heart is great,
By the little ged of love I’m on fire, fire, fire.

The little maid reply'd,
If I be your little bride,
Pray what will you give me for to eat, eat, eat.

Would the flame that you’re so rich in,
Light a fire into the kitchen,
Or the little god of love turn the spit, spit, spit.

The little man reply’d,
And some said, a little cry’d,
For his little heart was fill'd with sorrow sorrow sorrow,
With the little that I have,
I will be your little slave,
And the rest my little dear, we will borrow bor-
row, borrow,

Thus did the little gent,
Make the little maid relent,
For her little heart began for to beat, beat, beat,
Though his offers were but small,
She accepted of them all,
Now she thanks her little stars for her fate, fate, fate.
