Peter, Paul and Mary

Peter, Paul and Mary were a US folk-singing trio whose nearly 50-year career began with their rise to become a paradigm for 1960s folk music. The trio was composed of Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Mary Travers. After the death of Mary Travers in 2009, Yarrow and Stookey continued to perform as a duo under their individual names. more »

When I was a single girl, dressed in clothes so fine,
Now I am a married girl, go ragged all the time
Wish I was a single girl again
Wish I was a single girl again

When I was a single girl, had shoes of the very best kind
Now I am a married girl, go barefoot all the time
Wish I was a single girl again
Wish I was a single girl again

When I was a single girl, used to go to the store and buy
Now I am a married girl, just rock that cradle and cry
Wish I was a single girl again
Wish I was a single girl again

When a fella comes a' courtin' you, and sits you on his knee,
Keep your eye upon the sparrow that flits from tree to tree
And you'll never wish you were a single girl like me
You'll never wish you were a single girl like me
Wish I was a single girl again
