OH! MY! MY STORY IT IS TRUE
 
div
 
I'm going to sing to you a song,
And hope you'll not think it too - lengthy;
It's about a youth whose name was White,
Who was thinking of a maiden day and - evening.

Chorus: Oh! my! my story it is true, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue.

Now this girl whom he did admire,
Her maiden name was Anna Matilda;
But she would not listen to his suit,
'Cos she thought he was a great big - blackguard.

Chorus: Oh! my! my story it is true, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue.

One day when out his love he sees,
And immediately flops down on his—marrowbones:
Say he, "If me you don't cast your eyes on,
I'll instantly drink a cup of cold— pea soup."

Chorus: Oh! my! my story it is true, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue.

The maiden coldly turned her eyes
And told him from his knees to - get up;
For although he was a fine young man,
For his love she did not care a— button.

Chorus: Oh! my! my story it is true, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue.

The youth rose up in great despair,
And at once began to tear his - waistcoat;
Says he,"I'll make my name renowned,
For I'll jump into the water and be - suffocated.

Chorus: Oh! my! my story it is true, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue.

He rushed away, quite brave and bold,
But he found the water was so—chilly,
That he thought he'd postpone it till another day,
So he turned and walked off in the opposite - direction.

Chorus: Oh! my! my story it is true, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue.

MORAL.
So pray you all a warning take,
By this young man and maiden's - adventure,
For if they had but kept from strife,
They might have lived a happy and contented married - couple.

Chorus: Oh! my! my story it is true, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue, ue.
