Once I loved a pretty girl She was virtuous and young; Till at last I did discover That she had a flatt'ring tongue. CHORUS: No, my Ruth, it never can be, While I'm single I am free, While I'm single I am free, Love shall never, never conquer me. These few lines I have kept in my noddle, For to have them written on my grave; Free I'll live and free I'll die, Love shall never conquer me.
