Heptune presents:

I Ain't Gonna Marry, Ain't Gonna Settle Down

Transcribed from vocals by Viola McCoy, recorded March 11, 1924,
From Viola McCoy: Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order, Volume 2: 1924-1926; Document Records DOCD-5417.

I ain't going to marry, I ain't going to settle down,
Because the man I love is Alabama bound.
He broke my heart to pass the time away,
Now he wants it back again, but it's too late!
He promised to be faithful until the end,
But I caught him making love to my best friend,
You know that kind of loving won't never do!

So friends of mine, take my advice,
If you've been stung once, don't get stung twice;
Married life is mighty sweet,
But a single life personally is hard to beat;
It's nice to say that you are man and wife,
It's hard to find a pal who will stick through life;
So if the right one ain't easy found,
I ain't gonna marry or settle down.

So friends of mine, take my advice,
If you've been stung once, don't get stung twice;
Married life is mighty sweet,
But a single life personally is hard to beat;
It's nice to say that you are man and wife,
It's hard to find a pal who will stick through life;
If the right one ain't easy found,
I ain't gonna marry or settle down.
