When I sit by my fire, in a bachelor's state.

Then full oft in my mind with myself I debate—
Shall I marry?
When I think ofthe screaming of children, and when

And that some wives prove scolds. I determine it then—
Not to marry.
When I think of the couple whom nought can divide,    |
Of my children grown men, of a fond loving bride.
And often thousand dear tittle pleasures beside—
I must marry.
But then, when I sit with a friend o'er my wine,
And its blushing iips kiss till my soul's all divine,
With a bachelor's state I can never repine—
I'll not marry.
But when I consider that friend prove unkind.
And thnt youth with ils pleasures nre soon left behind.
Oh, then l determine, and make up my mind—
