NO! NO! A THOUSAND TIMES NO! (Al Sherman / Al Lewis / Abner Silver) Harry McDaniel & His Orch. - 1934 Ambrose & His Orch. (vocal: Elsie Carlisle & Sam Browne) - 1934 New Mayfair Dance Orch. (vocal: Bobbie Combier) - 1934 John Ralfini & His Band (vocal: Phyllis Robins & Pat O'Malley) - 1935 Leslie Sarony & Girl Friend - 1935 Mae Questel (feat. in the Betty Boop cartoon "No! No! A Thousand Times No!!") - 1935 Mrs. Mills & Vocal Chorus - 1970 Beatrice Kay - 1973 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 He 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 "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 her caress! No! No! A thousand times no! She'd rather die than say yes" Now this is the end of our story Her honour 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" ******************** As recorded by ELSIE CARLISLE & SAM BROWNE with Ambrose & His Orch: EC: I am a child of the valley An innocent maiden, you see SB: And I am a desperate Desmond I own all the town property EC: Though you pursue me through hill and through dell You know I'm wise to your game SB: Now listen, me girl, you will wed me or else EC: No, never, for think of the shame No!

No! A thousand times no! I'd rather die than say yes EC: I love the young village blacksmith A muscular he-man is he If he knew his love was in danger Right to the rescue he'd be SB: Here I am, darling in the nick of time To take you and make you my wife (But I warn you, blacksmith, this maiden is mine) Away with you, not on your life No! No! A thousand times no! I'd rather she die than say yes EC: This is the end of my story My honour is left without stain SB: I'll take you straight to the altar The villain we'll foil once again (Curse you!)

I'd rather die than say yes! (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2018)
