A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS
2 A penny for your thoughts!
Do you think that you will love her When all those burning dreams have flitted from your heart? A penny for your thoughts! Will a halo beam above her, When those delusive hopes and visions bright depart? Will all blessings then as now, Seem to linger round her brow, Or will they vanish like the bubbles on the A penny for your thoughts! [Till? For your heart's a cruel rover, 'Tis beating now for Jenny Dow, who lives beyond the mill?
3 A penny for your thoughts!
They are plain beyond concealing; Who cannot read a sighing lover through and through? A penny for your thoughts!
I have something worth revealing: Fair maids though full of vows, are fickle and untrue; Now throw those flattering hopes away To-morrow's J enny's wedding dayŚ One with a winning voice has gained her A penny for your tho'tsif yielding will' On your mind a change is stealing, What think you now of Jenny Dow, who/ lives beyond tlie mill?
