Notes
-  "Better to remain a maiden/unmarried girl" "One year after marriage, the hopeful maiden becomes a worn-out housewife. She's always at home, cleaning, cooking, with babies. Her husband says those are her duties, and goes to the theater. Better to have stayed single!" Source: Heskes, Irene, Yiddish American Popular Songs, 1895-1950. (General)
