when i was a young girl lyrics

Artist: nina simone
Song: when i was a young girl
Sebastian mure

When I was a young girl I used to seek pleasure
When I was a young girl I used to drink ale
Right out of the ale house and into the jail house
Right out of the bar room and down to my grave

Come mama come papa sit you beside me
Come mama come papa and pity my case
My poor head is aching my heart it is breaking
My body salivated and I'm bound to die

Go send for the preacher to come and pray for me
Go send for the doctor to heal up my wounds
My poor head is aching my heart it is breaking
My body salivated and hell is my home

I want three young ladies to bear up my coffin
I want three young ladies to take me along
I want them to carry a bunch of wild roses
To put on my body as I pass along

One morning one morning in may
One morning one morning in may
I spy this young lady all clad in white linen
All clad in white linen cold as the clay

When I was a young girl I used to seek pleasure
When I was a young girl I used to drink ale
Right out of the bar room
Right out of the ale house and into the jail house
Right out of the bar room down to my grave
