What a magic world
“Tripping hither and thither”
She had eyes for me
I was enchanted
The girl I had dated sang
I adored her so
Sadly there was a problem
Yes, another beau
But as they do say
“Faint heart ne’er won fair lady”
I had work to do
We walked in the park
“On a tree by a river “
A blue tit sang
How could I not hum
“Take a pair of sparkling eyes”
When I was with her
She whispered to me
"I have a song to sing, O"
For we were in love
