Once I Knew a Pretty Girl

Once I knew a pretty girl


I loved her as my life


I'd gladly give my heart and hand


To make her my wife


Ooh to make her my wife


She took me by the hand


She led me to the door


She put her arms around me


Saying "Please don't come no more"


Ooh Please come no more


Well I'd not been gone

But about six months


When she did complain


And she wrote me a letter


Saying "please come back again "


Ooh Please come again


So I sent her an answer


Just for to let her know


That no young man should venture


Where once he could not go


Ooh Where once he could not go


So come all you young lovers


Take a warning from me


And never plays your affections


On a green growing tree


Ooh on a green growing tree


For the leaves they will wither


Roots will decay


And the beauty of a young girl


Will soon fade away


Ooh will soon fade away
