What I mislearned from English folk songs

Well, supposing you should have one child, ‘twould make you laugh and smile.
And supposing you should have another, ‘twould make you think awhile,
And supposing you should have another, and another one or two,
That’d make you leave off them foolish young tricks that you played in the foggy dew.
— “The Foggy Dew” (English folk ballad)

My wife, who works at Planned Parenthood, informs me that, no, it wouldn’t.
