The Old Woman's Courtship
(also known as: The Deaf Woman's Courtship)
Nursery Rhyme / Song for Small Children

Rustic Courtship (image)


This is a two part song:
The man's part is in black text,
and the woman's is in red.


Old woman, old woman,
Are you fond of cooking?
Speak a little louder, sir,
I'm very hard of hearing.


Old woman, old woman,
Are you fond of sewing?
Speak a little louder, sir,
I'm very hard of hearing.


Old woman, old woman,
Will you darn my stocking?
Speak a little louder, sir,
I'm very hard of hearing.


Old woman, old woman,
Will you let me court you?
Speak a little louder, sir,
I just begin to hear you.


Old woman, old woman,
Don't you want to marry me?
Oh, my goodness gracious me,
I think that now I hear you.
