Tune: Come Write Me Down (trad: Copper Family version)
Come write me down that old wifeís name, Who got us playing superstitionís game, For superstition tells me what Iím allowed to do and what Iím not. I met this girl who was pretty and sweet And she asked me out for a meal to eat But the day it was the thirteenth and A Friday too, so that was banned. She gave me one more chance to prove That all my fears were eclipsed by love But a black cat ran in front of our door And I found I could go out no more. Your fearful heart cannot me entice To leave off reason and be your wife For I donít mean or intend at all To be kept in superstitionís thrall. Then go your way, you sceptical dame, You may scorn these teachings, I canít do the same, For when I was so very young A bucket hit me falling from a ladderís rung. Oh please young man, wonít you reconsider That the first old wife was just one big kidder. Let reason rule your fearful mind And then life itself will prove more kind. So to church they went the very next day And were married by asking, but Iíve heard say This girl wore some things old and new Something she had borrowed, also something blue.
