“I Wouldn't Marry an Old Man”


The singer prefers a young to an old man for explicit sexual reasons.


A male version, "I Wouldn't Marry an Old Maid," also exists. Necessarily, its verses differ from the female's; thus there may be two songs on the same theme with similar titles. Presumably the tunes will determine the question. In Randolph-Legman I, the melody for the female version given is more often associated with "No Balls at All." - EC

I suspect this may be a bawdy version of "I Wouldn't Have an Old Man," but Ed did not equate the two, and who am I to argue? - RBW
