A traditional. Sung from a space-time loop. Bad advice from the Ages.


Don’t sing love songs, you’ll wake my mother. She’s sleeping here, right by my side. And in her right hand, a silver dagger--she says that I can’t be your bride. “All men are false,” so says my mother. “They’ll tell you wicked loving lies. And the very next evening they’ll court another—leave you alone to pine and sigh.” My daddy is a handsome devil. He’s got a chain five miles long. And on each link a heart does dangle of another maid he’s loved and wronged. So go court another tender maiden, in hopes that she will be your wife. Cause I’ve been warned, and I’ve decided to sleep alone all of my life.
