I, THE man with the red scarf,
   Will give thee what I have, this last week's earn-
Take them, and buy thee a silver ring
   And wed me, to ease my yearnings.
For the rest, when thou art wedded
   I'll wet my brow for thee
With sweat, I'll enter a house for thy sake,
   Thou shalt shut doors on me.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
