Will You Be My Little Wife?

Will you be my little wife,

If I ask you? Do!

I'll buy you such a Sunday frock,

A nice umbrella, too.


And you shall have a little hat,

With such a long white feather,

A pair of gloves, and sandal shoes,

The softest kind of leather.


And you shall have a tiny house,

A beehive full of bees,

A little cow, a largish cat

And green sage cheese.
