Who Would Say No? (Complete)

December 06, 2020 02:16PM
Blurb: How can a heroine be an Austen heroine if she doesn't turn down a marriage proposal? To the tune of the Christmas Carol, "Up on the Housetop."

Austen herself wasn't above rejecting a proposal, and she gave that experience to many of her heroines… although typically they rejected the proposal right away rather than accepted and then rejected at a later date.

Who Would Say No?



Yay! It's that time of year again: Christmas music for everyone! I hope you enjoy.

Mansfield Park


Verse



First is the story of Fanny Price
Who caught the eye of a man of vice.
He sought her hand and she turned him down.
To repent, she was sent to Portsmouth town.

Chorus


Ho, ho, ho! Who would say no?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go
Up to the altar, weep, weep, weep,
And ever after with that creep?

Persuasion


Verse


Hear of Kellynch and dear Cinder-Anne.
She won the heart of a humdrum man.
But a life as his wife would be dreadf'lly dull
So she said, "no thanks," and she stayed single.

Chorus


Ho, ho, ho! Who would say no?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go
Up to the altar, wail, wail, wail,
And ever after with that male?

Emma


Verse


Pretty Miss Woodhouse in Highbury
Had the vicar 'round for tea.
He mistook her kindness for something more
But she set him straight, that pompous bore.

Chorus


Ho, ho, ho! Who would say no?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go
Up to the altar, sob, sob, sob,
And ever after with that snob?

Pride and Prejudice


Verse


The ladies of Longbourn will need a man.
Mr. Collins has a plan.
Lizzy won't have him. But what is this?
Charlotte will snag her wedded bliss.

Chorus


Ho, ho, ho! Who would say no?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go
Up to the altar, cry, cry, cry,
And ever after with that guy?

//THE END//

Happy end of the year to everyone. 2020, don't let the door hit you on your way out. I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year. Stay safe and remember the best is yet to come.
