Buy Broom Besoms If you want a besom for to sweep your house Come to see me lassies, you shall have your choice Buy broom besoms, buy them when they're new Fine heather bred uns, better never grew Besoms for a penny, rangers for a plack If you will not buy, I'll tie them on my back If I had a horse, I would have a cart If I had a wife, she would take my part Had I but a wife, I care not who she be If she be a woman, that's enough for me If that she be bonnie, then I'll think it right If that she be ugly, what's the odds at night If she liked a droppie, her and I'd agree If she didn't like it, there's the more for me If that she be fruitful, then I'd think it fair If that she be barren, less will be my care If that she be young, how happy I will be If that she be old, the quicker she will die printed in Seeds of Love by Sedley SOF
