I WON'T BE A NUN
 
div
 
Now is it not a pity that such a pretty girl as I
Should be couped up in a Nunnery to pine away and die
But I won't be a Nun, No I won't be a Nun
I am so fond of pleasures that I cannot be a Nun.

I am sure I cannot tell now, what mischief I have done
But my Mother often tells me that I must be a Nun
But I won't be a Nun, No I won't be a Nun
I am so fond of pleasures that I cannot be a Nun.

I could not bear confinement no, it would not do for me
For I like to go a-shopping and to see what I can see
But I won't be a Nun, No I won't be a Nun
I am so fond of pleasures that I cannot be a Nun.

I love to hear men flattering, love fashionable clothes
I love music and dancing and chatting with the beaus
But I won't be a Nun, No I won't be a Nun
I am so fond of pleasures that I cannot be a Nun.

So Mother don't be angry now but let your daughter be
For the Nuns would not like to have a novice wild as me
But I won't be a Nun, No I won't be a Nun
I am so fond of pleasures that I cannot be a Nun.
