Reuben and Rachel

Reuben, Reuben Iíve been thinking
What a fine world this would be
If the men were all transported
Far beyond the northern sea

Oh, my goodness, gracious, Rachel,
What a strange world this would be
If all the men were all transported
Far Beyond the northern sea.

Reuben, Reuben, Iíve been thinking
What a great life girls would lead
If they had no men about them
None to tease them, none to heed

Rachel, Rachel, Iíve been thinking
Life would be so easy then
What a lovely world this would be
If youíd leave it too the men

Reuben, Reuben, stop your teasing
If youíve any love for me
I was only just a-fooling
As I thought, of course, youíd see

Rachel, if youíll not transport us
I will take you for my wife
And Iíll split with you my money
Every pay day of my life!
