Uncouth and un-refined-
So I signed up fer night school
To improve my backwoods mind;
But,while I was vettin' Latin
And a- sweatin' my degree
In Medieval Classics
You was steppin' out on me !!
Alas, my love, you do me wrong-
( I was fixin' to spend a little time with you )
For I have love-ed you so long-
You up an' left me - what am I gonna do ?
Greensleeves Greensleeves was * my delight
But I couldn't keep her home at night -
Now I can quote from Shakespeare
(Or Chaucer if you choose)
But that don't seem to help none
With these Greensleeves Blues !
Oh you nagged me into Night School
Just to rid yerself of me-
I never seen it comin' --
What fools we mortals be !
Now other scholars quote me-
But I'm still outa luck :
You're givin' all yer lovin'
To some guy that drives a truck !
