If I were a carpenter,
Would you marry me anyway,
If you were a carpenter,
I'd marry you anyway,
If a tinker was my trade,
I'd be carrying the pots you made,
Save your love through loneliness,
I gave you my onlyness,
If I were a miller,
Would you miss your colored blouse,
If you were a miller,
I'd not miss my colored blouse,
Save your love through loneliness,
I gave you my onlyness,
If I worked my hands on wood,
I'd answer you yes I would.
If I were a carpenter,
I'd marry you anyway,
Save your love through loneliness,
I gave you my onlyness,
