I THOWT MEBBE I WOULD, AN' I DID

I'll never forget
The first time I met
Wi' sweet Annie Stump;
Ba gum! she wor plump!
She come up to me,
'Hey, Willyum,' says
'Be's't lookin' for owt?'
Then gave me a
She had such a takin' way,
She took me a walk that day;
An' when wi' that wench
I sat on a bench,
She gave me a squeeze,
An' says, 'Kiss me please!'

Chorus: Well I looks at 'er,
An' I thinks, 'She's a likely young lass!"
An' I gowps at 'er,
She wor lush as a meadow o' grass.
An' I winks at 'er,
When she says, 'Wil' ta cuddle me, kid?'
An' I thowt - mebbe I would,
An' I - well - I did!

It 'appened one night
I got an invite
To Farmer Brown's Ball,
Wi Annie an'all!
She looked a real treat,
As red as a beet,
An' bloomin' like some Ger-a-ni-i-um.
It fair made me swell wi' pride
To 'ave that lass by my side.
We danced yan, an' then
I blushed at 'er when
She said with a pout,
'Let's sit next yan out!'

Chorus: Well I looks at 'er
An' I thinks, 'She's a likely young lass!'
An' I gowps at 'er,
As we waited for dancers to pass.
An' I winks at 'er,
When she says, 'Let's sit where we'll be hid!'
An' I thowt mebbe I would,
An' I - well - I did!

She 'olded my 'and,
And said, 'Ain't it grand
To sit like this 'ere.'
Ba gum! I felt queer.
An' then she says, 'Will
You marry me, Bill?'
I 'ardly could speak!
She 'ad got a cheek.
An' soon to the church I was led,
Where Parson stood waitin' to wed.
An' next thing I knew,
He ask'd me, 'Will you
Take 'er for your wife?
Your trouble an' strife?'

Chorus: Well I looks at 'er
An' I thinks, 'She's a likely young lass!'
An' I gowps at 'er,
For I heard she'd got plenty of brass.
An' I winks at 'er,
When, to put on the ring I was bid,
An' I thowt mebbe I would,
An' I - well - I did!
