Tell me,
Tell me,
– one true thing…
what’s the motion
what’s the thing;
that makes young girls cry
and young maidens swoon
hark -I’ll listen; sing me the tune
tell me in song,
of how it was in days old
when gents and ladies
were both pure and bold
how hearts were earned
and treasures held
and the secrets that a maiden’s
lilly bosom teld’
the man who would
a come
a courtin’
and seek a gal’s right hand for sportin’
oh’ all this now it is so gaudy
and actions required
none the less so taudy
oh’ but a chance to be back
yesteryear
when a man could speak
into a young girl’s ear
Tell me,
Tell me,
– one thing true;
are you as bewitched with me
as I
with you?
