Molly, you've got to Put your saddle on tight. You've a red, red runner For your final flight. You're my only sister, But a price is a price, And he's not going lower Than my sister's life. Would that I may go with you, But a rule is a rule, And the red, red rascal Is no sister's fool. In the Putnam meadow Grows a poison lily, If I were a smart girl,

I would take it with me. So she's taken her dress up, And she's tied back her hair With a winsome ribbon Such as never were, And she looked as brazen As the scalded sea, When the sun rips its favors Into morning's peace.

To a maidenly tongue. Did the devil take her? Did the devil decide On a red carnation Or a red-blooded bride? He's been up her ankle, And he's taken his treat, And he's eaten apples Full of poison lily. Satan wears a flower Like a dandy heathen, It's a fairer lily Than the one that she gave him. He's a rowdy rascal With a hearty complexionâ€"â€" It's the very color Of a lily stamen.
