AT TRINITY CHURCH (I MET MY DOOM) (Fred Gilbert - 1894) Tom Costello - 1934 Twelve months ago with decent chances Prospects of success in life Thru' foolish love of ballroom dances Trouble came..... I met my wife Such a noble, buxom creature She in my eyes then appeared False she was, though fair of feature Like to salmon I was speared She told me her age was five and twenty Cash in the bank of course she'd plenty I like a lamb believed it all I was an M - U - G At Trinity church I met my doom Now we live in a top back room Up to my eyes in debt for renty That's what she's done for me In bridal dress with frills and flounces 'Pon my word, she did look fine Quite sixteen stone and some odd ounces Weighed then this dear wife of mine People whispered she had money Oh! what tales some folks will tell She was simply sixteen stoney What a swindle... what a sell She told me her age was five and twenty Cash in the bank of course she'd plenty I like a lamb believed it all I was an M - U - G At Trinity church I met my doom Now we live in a top back room Up to my eyes in debt for renty That's what she's done for me When she confessed I'd scarce believe her Though at last the truth she told She hadn't got a bloomin' fiver She was thirty-six years old I can only grin and bear it Poor indeed in my estate She, poor girl, is forced to share it Down will drop her mortal weight She told me her age was five and twenty Cash in the bank of course she'd plenty I like a lamb believed it all I was an M - U - G At Trinity church I met my doom Now we live in a top back room Up to my eyes in debt for renty That's what she's done for me
