NO! NO! A THOUSAND TIMES NO! (Al Sherman / Al Lewis / Abner Silver) Annette Hanshaw - 1934 Mae Questel (as the voice of Betty Boop, featured in the cartoon film "No! No! A Thousand Times No!!") - 1935 She was a child of the valley An innocent maiden was she He was a desperate Desmond Who owned all the town property He would pursue her through hills and through dells But she was wise to his game Each time he threatened "You'll wed me or else" These were the words she'd exclaim.... "No! No! A thousand times no! You cannot buy my caress! No! No! A thousand times no! I'd rather die than say yes" Ah! but this poisonous villain He wouldn't leave her alone. Said, "Either join me in wedlock Or I'll kick you out of your home" She knew her people so feeble and old Needed a roof o'er their heads Winter would soon bring the snow and the cold Yet she defied him and said.... "No! No! A thousand times no! You cannot buy my caress! No! No! A thousand times no! I'd rather die than say yes" That night he crept up to her window And oh! how that villain could creep He stole her out of her boudoir And kidnapped her while fast asleep He tied the gal to the old railroad track The milk train was rushing down the hill She cried to him, "Though my future looks black You buzzard, my answer is still.... "No! No! A thousand times no! You cannot buy my caress! No! No! A thousand times no! I'd rather die than say yes" Now she loved the young village blacksmith A muscular young "he-man" was he He heard that his love was in danger And right to the rescue flew he He grabbed his darling in "thee" nick of time And yelled, "This is my future wife!" The villain sneered, "Blacksmith, that maiden is mine!" The hero cried, "Not on your life!".... "No! No! A thousand times no! You cannot buy my caress! No! No! A thousand times no! I'd rather die than say yes" Now this is the end of our story Her honor was left without stain The hero took her to the altar The villain was foiled once again The mortgage was paid and the handsome young swain Moved in with her folks right away Their life is contented though simple and plain And no more will she have to say.... "No! No! A thousand times no! You cannot buy my caress! No! No! A thousand times no! I'd rather die than say yes"
