Looks like it has an unhappy ending--

And now I see that money is all,
And woman's love is nothing at all;
So I'll not marry you,
So I'll not marry you.

I'm determined to be an old maid,
Take my stool and live in the shade,
And marry no one at all,
And marry no one at all.

--BUT:  she then becomes a shade-tree mechanic and lives happily (or
at least in financial security) ever after.
