(Ah Ah)
If I were a carpenter & you were a lady
Now would you marry me anyway? (would you marry me anyway)
Would you have my baby? (would you have my baby)
If I take on a tinkers trade, would you still find me?
Oh carryin' the pots I made (carryin' the pots I made)
Followin' closer behind me (followin' behind me)
