    Et quand vous tegnoung,
    vous dognoung dou bastoung!

    1. Tell me, Gianetta, do you care to wed?
    Tell me, Gianetta, do you care to wed?
    Oh, Mother darling, the very word you've said!
    Oh, Mother darling, the very word you've said!

    I want a man
    who keeps a 'baccy-shop,
    Five for the light ones,
    and ten the fancy crop.

    They promise fairly,
    while they're courting you,
    And when they've got you,
    they beat you black and blue!
