Broadside ballad entitled 'Fine Big Woman'
Sung with great success by Walter Munro.
Poplaur song on always be had at Poet's Box
I feel so dreadful nervous,
For by this time to-morrow,
I'll be fastened to a wife.
That's twice the size of me,
What the consequnce will be.
She'a a fine big woman and she knows
But I feel so dredful narvous, I don't
know what I'll bo
twelve sone tow.
I would like to brek the contract,
But that would never do,
Between myself and yon.
A breach of promise cast,
The breaches on my face.
She made mo drunk at Sullivans'
Then sat upon my kuce
Upon a little chap like me'
I had not one word to say,
I give myself away.
printed by W. Sheqherd. Dundee.
