about

This is a goofy one! The theme here is that marrying relatives is becoming frowned upon by the church and if the aunt and uncle get married before this person and their cousin, well then the bishop will only let one of these inbred unions take place.
And so the singer whines whines whines about it in this strange tune.
Sing this frequently to annoy as many people as possible. "What the hellll is that stupid song!?" they will shriek.
It's spelled all messed up with a few Dutch words thrown in there for good measure to make it seem "very old". Yes yes, it's quite authentic I can assure you.

lyrics

CH:
Nae Aunt Mary, nae marry Uncle John
for then coul' I nae marry Cousine Anne Cousine Anne
an aye na' the bishop cast e' eye mae way
an' t' mae marriage hae a' then say nae

For a nae man th' church n' gon' twee mor' allow
an' afore on such a thing thae a' man frown'd
an' then na' bishop gan' turn m' n' Anne down
an' nae twee mor' t' marry, nae n' in th' same huis

Aye Aunt Mary an' John knae th' day
an' it trouble mae now they'd bae marr'd b'fore mae
an' after that m' n' Anne nay a weddin' day
an' I may nay marry mae n' Anne ne'er may

*CH*
an' after that m' n' Anne nay a weddin' day
an' I may nay marry mae n' Anne ne'er may
